i just made the most unbelievable chicken
bro, this is the kind of cooked meat that belongs on a fried meme. it’s almost fully pale barely yellowish and golden from the light frying i did and mostly helped by the butter (shouts to butter)
forcing myself to do something i don’t want to while i’m so angry or sad is also delightfully funny because. like. what, is this raw chicken going to kill me ? because it feels so uughsdghghugghwwegu gross on my hands and fingers and ughghg i gotta cut around the fat and the veiny bits bc i hate hate hate when i bite into them ? is this raw chicken going to murder me ? or what, i forget to wash my hands and the ghost of meaty residuals on my one singular chef’s knife that i currently own is going to somehow give me salmonella ? like, ofc not dude, so i will begrudgingly cook this stupid meat in the worst way possible because i have to !!! no more games, i gotta eat bitch !
the past few days i’ve been learning about pushers in tennis. why? because i keep losing matches that ‘i don’t think i should be losing’ and googled this shit and it turns out, i earned that loss and also this reality check ; - ;
things that don’t win points:
- being hot
- sound mind
things that win points:
- keeping the ball in play longer than your opponent
pushers are tennis players who keep the ball in play no matter what, and often, without any of the things that don’t win points. me, being a flashy player with a punch behind my strokes… ya ya ya exactly, exactly. turns out that i didn’t (don’t?) respect pushers but i’m kinda realizing how delusional that is in a competitive setting. like of course you don’t win as many points with passing shots / winners / aces. of course if i think that those are the only shots involved in any winning strategy that’s going to pile on the pressure to only have those plays and not work on consistency or patience.
i’m kind of in awe of pushers now tbh. the war of attrition type of game they play is no joke. i kinda wanna take that game and run with it, like, irl i mean. off the court
