Whenever somebody says they need an angle for their story I always fear that they've got an idea and they want me to fit into it or they want me to come up with an idea myself or I'm supposed to be more revealing than I've been, and to me it just sounds like something I don't want to do.
I never, ever, ever cook. And I would never eat anything I might cook.
There's nothing wrong with acknowledging the panoply of life's rich experience.
