If you learn to cook and cook well, and learn how foods should taste and how the ingredients interact, and all that stuff you will find life is much better... Nothing says welcome home honey like an awesome meal...
Reminded me of:
A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.
