We just don’t talk about it. And by IT, I mean, what actually happens when someone dies. We’re all curious about it but we also know that we can’t say “I’m sorry your Grandma passed away. Who did you call when it happened? Did she go to the morgue? Did you write the obituary?“

Many, many years ago, I tried guacamole. I liked it pretty well, enough to learn how to make it but I didn’t loooooove it. Fortunately, I rarely give up on food (it’s my best/worst trait) eating it again and again until finally, I fall in love. Like, I love it so much, I made it […]
