Betty Crocker® and Universal Truth(s)


I decided to try Betty Crocker’s Mac & Cheese on a whim, I’ve had the “blues” for years.
But this isn’t a review on that. Besides, I’m not even sure if I thought it was better or the same. The initial taste was satisfactory, but I was really hungry. I also overcooked the noodles, slightly.
I finished eating the last bit a few moments ago. The package consisted of the standard straightened noodles one comes to expect with macaroni from a box. However, the very last portion contained an imposter. It was an elbow macaroni noodle (drat, I should have taken a picture to be more convincing). The only one, in the entire batch. Yes, I look at every piece of macaroni as I eat it.
I humored myself with the notion I was the creative elbow macaroni struggling to exist in a sea of standards that say life (writing) should be a certain way. Then I ate it.
But I thought, no matter how unique you think (hope), or how special people insist you are, none of us escape being eaten by life.
Or
For every single elbow, there are hundreds of non-elbows, so chances are you’re not an elbow. But hey, it doesn’t hurt to try, especially if we’re all going to be eaten anyway.
