I’m thinking today I’ll put in for something very different…
Several years ago I had this idea, my mom lives on the channels in Oxnard, California where many of the homes have private docks at the rear of the homes. I love to cook (I absolutely LOVE to cook) and many of my dishes are Pan-Asian inspired. Out there the popular thing is to have an electric boat they typically call “cocktail boats” and just putter around the channels watching the seals and generally hanging out.
So I thought to myself why not modify a little boat Bladerunner style (favorite movie ever btw) and cruise around cooking and slinging stir fry? I named this dream boat of mine “Wok on Water” and, while somewhat of a pipe dream it’s always good to dream. I’ve been battling a touch of anxiety lately and I’ve come to the conclusion that maybe I don’t dream enough. Stewing in all that can go wrong or all that is wrong often yields piss poor results for someone like me as I do just that, I stew.
I dream now and then of a food truck or a career where I can just cook so I think perhaps maybe it’s time for me to rethink and just go find me an entry level kitchen job and follow a passion. What’s the worst that can happen? People might say no, I might end up in a dish pit for a while, maybe I’ll get lucky and find a prep job.
