It’s not that I don’t like to cook, it’s just that I’ve never really learned how to cook. It just doesn’t come naturally to me and I haven’t taken the time to practice it much. And when I’m cooking for myself I’m content making cereal, peanut butter on toast or Top Ramen for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Anything else just takes too long.

Unfortunately, since I don’t make the food, I have to clean up the food when I’m at my parents’, which means I’ve been on clearing-the-table and storing-the-leftovers detail for literally decades.
