Teen Inherits Weird, Printed Out Food Blog That Only Contains the Recipes and Nothing Else
After a recent spring cleaning, the grandmother of local teen Jessica Overstreet, 19, gifted her with what can only be described as the condensed, printed, and bound pages of a food blog but with none of the usual context whatsoever.
"But...how will I know what I'm supposed to feel about the food?" asked Overstreet while frantically thumbing the pages. "What inspired the recipe? What country were they visiting when they discovered it?"
"I mean, it's kind of nice not having to scroll through all the ads, but all this shows me is what ingredients and kitchenware I'll need, and step-by-step instructions on how to make the dish. It doesn't tell me *why* I should make it. What am I supposed to do with this?"
When pressed for more information, Jessica's grandmother didn't seem to understand the questions. "Jessica, you just follow the recipes. I don't know what you don't understand about that."
To which an increasingly exacerbated Jessica could only reply, "You didn't need to print it, you could've just sent a link."
