As my therapist told me, “if you’re going through hell, just keep going.” She obviously wasn’t the first one to say it, but she was the first one to say it to me. So. If you’re going through hell, just keep going.
And drink plenty of tea.
Buy expensive treats to enjoy.
Try to find joy in little surprises.
And make yourself some goddamn waffles, already.
Waffles For One On a Weekday Morning
1 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon sugar
1.5 teaspoons baking powder
dash of cinnamon, for good measure
3/4 cup milk
2 tablespoons melted butter
3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
Mix your dries, then mix the wets, then mix ’em together. Put them in an oiled waffle maker. Wait a few minutes, eat with plenty of syrup, a pear and some tea, watch Louie on Netflix, attempt to pause the near-constant stream of uncomfortable self-evaluation for a moment. Makes four waffles.
