Zucchini is bad. Zucchini, in fact, is the worst vegetable. Uncooked zucchini exists in a vacuum of flavor. Cooked zucchini, on the other hand, tastes like what I imagine hot turtle water tastes like. How you can go from nothing to unholy with the mere introduction of heat is a testament to zucchini’s darkness. Zucchini is the cantaloupe of vegetables. Zucchini is the vegetable you pair with yellow squash and serve in vats to large groups of people you disrespect. Zucchini is a miserable cucumber.

Every time they offer me a potato chip or french fry, it’s like a well-meaning relative insisting that “you just haven’t met the right guy yet.” Sorry, Aunt Helen, but it’s not a matter of the right guy or the right potato.
One of my favorite things that I started doing after I came out was learning how to cook some of my mom’s recipes and it’s made us a lot, lot closer than we ever were before.
Something else for you to think about: “cupcakes” is a slang term for “boobs.”
A person can only eat an avocado-kale-egg scramble so many days in a row, you know?
