While You Were Sleeping

Warning: Getting up at 5:00am on a Sunday may affect mental alertness and/or coordination. If affected, do not drive a motor vehicle or operate machinery.

This is a self portrait I took sometime around 6:00am this past Sunday morning. Though the cafe doesn't open until 8am during the weekends, I like to get there early to make sure that most of our daily prep is finished by opening. The goggles I am so proudly wearing are my latest attempt to protect the eyes while slicing onions. They seem to do the trick, and simultaneously succeed in freaking out passerbys who happen to glance in and see me cooking.

this made me laugh aloud at the image of looking in and seeing you this way. a little frightening though too.

What freaks me out is knowing where you were when you took the picture, and it's NOT the kitchen.

Next time I visit the LRBC, I expect you to emerge silently from the curtained cubby in the bathroom and introduce me to my demise at the blade of an onion-scented knife.

I read once that holding a slice of bread in your mouth while you slice onions keeps the tears away. So I tried it. It was sorta successful. But I bet the goggles work better. I'll have to get me a pair of 'em.
