I gave up cooking. LikeLike Reply That would do it! In general, I don’t mind cooking – but only when I don’t feel like I have to. (When I was growing up, my brother and I had to take turns making dinner on weeknights. The results were usually healthy, but extremely uninspired.) LikeLike Reply I love cooking! Unlike with music, I actually have some talent. See! LikeLike Reply Nice! That looks really tasty. LikeLike Reply What time should we be there for dinner? 🙂 LikeLike Reply Ouch! This is why I don’t listen to opera when I attempt to cook. 😛 Hope it doesn’t sting too much! 🙂 LikeLike Reply Nah, it’s pretty much almost healed already. I think the solution is that if music and cooking must mix, the music should be something very familiar and unlikely to distract.
