“Do you love hot and spicy foods or do you avoid them for fear of what tomorrow might bring? “
What is this question really asking? I can’t see anyone having any interest in my answer at face value, but here it is: I do love hot and spicy foods. Fascinating.
However, if this question is a metaphor, and we are talking about life, and not food, my answer changes: If indeed, as 18th century English poet William Cowper wrote, “variety is the spice of life”, then my life is naked and raw, which sounds very sexy- but honestly when I say naked and raw, I’m visualizing unseasoned uncooked vegetables- my life. This is not good.
I’ve learned an inestimable lesson here this morning. In food and in life, one can never have enough spice. My life needs to emulate my food. I need more spice in my life. I must try to align my personal life with my cooking. To accomplish this, to quote chef Emeril Lagasse, I’ll “kick it up a notch”- my life, and be a bit hotter and spicier; and then perhaps someday I’ll be truly naked and raw, but not like uncooked unseasoned vegetables.
