Not Martha


The last time I chopped onions (using those instructions in the Everyday Food magazine even) I was preparing a pretend nice dinner, which meant I was cooking for no special reason, and decided to play Dress Up, including applying makeup, something which is becoming increasingly rare. I tried every trick I knew to keep the onions from making me cry, I turned on the gas burner, lit a candle, opened windows. Within seconds tears were streaming onto my cheeks, making my Very Black eyeliner and mascara slide nearly to my chin in a good two minute faux crying session. This is why I think Ugly Green Chair is a genius.
