I started adding Onions on my delivery pizza

As the writing drought appears to be spontaneously going away…go figure, I’ve decided to write about something less writing-related. Again, go figure…

I’ve never been a big fan of onions. Sure, I like the flavor of them in things like onion rings, onion salt, etc, but what’s always bothered me about them is their crunch in raw form. Probably because my mother, awesome cook that she was, put raw onion in many things that I preferred to keep simple and plain. Like tuna salad. So, I developed an aversion to that crunch every time I encountered it in food. Sorry, but some food should not be crunchy. Perhaps I was a fussy eater, perhaps I was just a pain in the butt. Only Time and God knows for sure.

I ordered this really good Buffalo Chicken Pizza from Papa John’s the other night and though I should have specified no onions, I figured what the heck and left em in. Know what? I liked it. Personal Growth? Maybe. They were cooked to the right consistency so no damn crunch and they added to the overall flavor quite nicely. I don’t order delivery very often except on those nights where I’m going to be up late writing (like at the time of this posting) and while I love to cook, sometimes you have to say Screw It and cheat a little.

What does this have to do with Lights and Shadows? Or Writing in general? Not a damn thing unless you want to chalk it up to getting a little insight into the guy writing the story. Or I wanted to kill some break time…

Go Figure…
