“We ate the lunch with painful politeness and avoided discussing its taste. I made sure not to apologize for it. This was a rule of mine. I don’t believe in twisting yourself into knots of excuses and explanations over the food you make…Usually one’s cooking is better than one thinks it is. And if the food is vile,…then the cook must simply grit her teeth and bear it with a smile- and learn from her mistakes.” — Julia Child, from My Life in France
How many bloggers miss a day, only to write a gut-wrenching “where I was” post?
The readers came back. You came back. Like a pet says, “You’re here now!”
As you were.
