Thinking about my essay for today, I looked up the etymology of the word “eliminate.” It comes from the Latin for going out from the threshold, exiting the limits. An antonym for the word is “include,” which comes from the Latin for closing in. These things made me think about my kitchen and pantry, where I spend so much of my time, and how I include or eliminate items.
When I work in my kitchen, I want to be able to move quickly. I love to cook, and I have a large family so I cook a lot, and I want to know exactly where everything is. Nothing is more annoying to me when I am cooking than not being able to put out my hand and locate the tool or ingredient I need.More
