I want to learn to grill.
But then I wonder if I enjoy too many manly things. I mean, I lift. Like, I can bench and do cleans and dead lifts and all these man gym things. I also like beer and make car noises when my car goes really fast.
Then, I remember that I can’t kill a spider over the size of a dime to save my life, have zero interest in sports, don’t eat meat, and like to paint my nails. And it makes me feel better… feminine.
So, maybe I will learn to grill or maybe I will just leave that to the men. I feel like grilling is the man’s domain in the kitchen. Not that I don’t love a man that can cook – because, let’s be real, who doesn’t? – but I feel like men find comfort being around the grill rather than the stove. And if they can grill a mean portobello, more power to them. Because I am still learning.
