“Dorothy Zbornak eats shiitake mushroom.” – Dorothy Zbornak, The Golden Girls
I was filling out a job application recently and they asked how people related through food and how that makes you relatable.
What if nobody taught you what to believe? What if God or whoever you believe in said, “I mean, this is my thinking but hey…You need to think for yourself. You don’t need me to tell you what’s right and what’s wrong.”
I am from small town Ohio and I have small town thoughts. I use small town words, I love to eat at diners, I think everyone is trustworthy and I think Sunday drives are the best. Then when I went off to college I went to a little bigger town, after college an even bigger town and then eventually a beast. New York City.
I had no idea that all these years growing up that my Mom could have been one of these top paid gurus of today. She always had bits of advice and words of encouragement that shot out of her mouth like wild fire.
