There are things that I think about all the time. Many of them are stupid things.
Like this one: Every time I empty the lint from my dryer, I think about this artist who makes sculpture out of dryer lint. I think to myself, “She could really put this to good use. It’s a pity to throw it out.” I’ve had this recurring thought every time I’ve cleaned out the dryer lint for the last 25 years. Yes.
I have a similar thought every time I cut broccoli. I get Dana Carvey’s Choppin’ Broccoli song stuck in my head (video below).
“Now my lady, she went downtown. She bought some broccoli. She brought it home.
Now she’s choppin broccoli, choppin broccoli. She choppin brocca-lay-huh.”
And now I have shared this stupid thought with you.
You’ll be chopping broccoli soon enough. (That is basically the whole recipe.) Just try and get the song out of your head, as you make it.
