Sometimes there are random people hanging out at my house, that don’t really LIVE here. They just happen to be here tuning the piano or spraying poison on my yellow dandelions or blowing insulation into my attic.
Most of the time when these random visitors are here, I’m working and cooking and writing recipes for you all. When Mr. Blowing Insulation Into My Attic was here, I was taking pictures of food and was so engrossed in my project that I didn’t notice him standing on the other side of my kitchen counter. Snapping photos of food in front of blue poster board takes a lot of concentration, you know. It’s really similar to Rocket Science, so I hear. Or so I would hear if I had any Rocket Science People for friends.
The look on the insulation mans face said WHY is this weird lady taking pictures of her food…what, eating it isn’t enough! The crazy cat has to immortalize it with a camera?
But what he said was…
“Um, ma’am. I have some paper work for you to sign.”
Which I signed, while saying something like…
“I know it seems kind of weird that I’m taking pictures of cookies in front of a big piece of poster board, right?”
“Well, now that you mention it…what ARE you doing exactly?”
And I tried to explain that I wasn’t making a cookie scrap book or anything, since that would be weird since I don’t even have a scrap book for the last 4 of my 5 children so why would I make a scrap book full of COOKIES! Laaaand sakes! Ha, ha ha ha ha…um, ha.
He didn’t laugh.
So I told him, what I’m really doing is taking pictures of cookies so I can put them up on the web where I post recipes and cooking tips for people who are looking for really good recipes and cooking tips.
“Oh. Um. That’s cool. Could you give me the paper work back, ma’am. We’ll be going so you can get back to your…poster board thing.”
Rocket Science, my friends.
It’s a really respectable profession.
PS…I really love writing this blog.
PPS…Thanks for coming by to read it so I don’t have to make a cookie scrap book with all these food pictures I’ve got lying around.
