Ramadan Chronicles: Chocolate Peanut Butter

on

I don’t like peanuts. In fact I really don’t like peanuts, and I never have. But out of nowhere I suddenly keep discovering new peanut-y things that I really really like.

The world is getting too confusing.

I thought for sure that this meant I’d like peanut butter but nope. Still don’t get it. But to no one’s surprise, turns out I’ll eat anything with chocolate.

So I blended some peanuts with some chocolate. And coz it’s Ramadan I’ve decided that counts as a recipe.

In other news, cricket has been bothering me. More specifically, cricketers. I’ve decided that too much talent can be just plain annoying. It’s one thing to be an all-rounder but to bat and bowl with different hands and be all super-ambidextrous is just showing off. And it turns out that the number of players that fall into the above category far exceeds what I had anticipated. This was very upsetting. I like watching cricket but if people are going to be all comic-book-like about it then that leaves me feeling horribly mediocre. Then of course, I remembered that I’m not, and that I’m actually quite brilliant. And so began my latest venture: left-handed mehndi.

Every time I look at my fully patterned left hand, my right hand gets a little sad. But I always figured this could not be helped, and that it should just be happy being brown without the extra brown-ness. I was wrong. There is always hope for extra brown-ness.

My first left-handed attempt actually went way better than I thought it would, and I have every intention of becoming progressively more impressive at it.

Because cricketers are not allowed to be cooler than me.

    …but can you henna your right foot with your left one? I bet Indian cricketers can.
