Another Great Story
I am world famous for my ability to ruin all jokes and stories. I can take your one trusty joke, the one you pull out when you really want to impress someone, repeat it word for word and shabamm, it will transform into the kind of joke that puts you to sleep like a late night informercial.
My stories are ten times worse. It has gotten to the point where everytime I open my mouth, a particular friend of mine, (I will not name names, you know who you are) will say in a truly sarcastic voice, "Ehhhh another one of your awesome stories Mouse". Sometimes I know they are coming and try to head them off by making up bigger, better endings. I have also been known to stop mid-sentence and walk away rather then suffering the humilation of seeing another "Is that it?" face.
So coming back from Europe my confidence has been a little knocked when it comes to telling stories. What if I am boring everyone else out there too? That's when I realised that yes my everyday stories may be stupidly boring but one thing I am good out is talking about food and my life with food. So take that MJW!
Over the next few weeks I will be telling you a few stories about my food experience in the following countries: Spain, France, Italy, Germany, England. I am going to spend a week on each country and then cook recipes, that I tried or was inspired by while I was there.
This week is all about Spain. So come back here on Wednesday and see what Catalan treats I will have in store for you.
