Reader Bao: AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH What are you doing GET IT OUT OF MY FACE!


But I stand unfazed in the sight of rice cooked not to imperfection. I may weep for the rice, but to take it upon others is unbecoming.

Reader Bao: How can you not react to this travesty against our heritage? Do you not have the blood of our ancestors flowing through your vein?!

My young reader Bao, I understand your anger. But we should not let anger cloud our judgement. Human beings are imperfect, and it would do well to forgive and forget.

And for you, a word of wisdom: Show a man how to cook rice, and he’ll eat rice for a day. Give a man a rice cooker, and he’ll cook good rice forever.

Thus I present to you:
