I’m teaming up with local bloggers this month in a challenge to blog daily, the Axis of Ineptitude. Oops, yes, I already missed the first day of May, clinching that ineptitude title. Today’s topic is to define yourself in an uncommon way. I really wanted to define myself with food, but realized that Evin of Food Good Laundry Bad had the same thought, ran with it, dressed it up all fancy and took it to the prom. Seriously, you gotta read it.
How am I defining myself today? I’m water. I’m warm, bouyant, comforting when needed. I simmer to a slow boil, then a rolling one when discussing my passions, whether it be food, Austin restaurants, my family or just my favorite no brainer television show. I’m that rush of steam escaping a hot foil packet of roasted garlic just pulled from the oven, burning your hand through the oven mitt, when my temper overwhelms. And at times I’ve been icy, rough-edged and hardened, until life throws me against a stainless steel sink and I shatter, and melt.
