But not in the way that Patricia Smith, Ai, or Ntozake Shange have inspired me. No, I inspire other people by bringing in rank smelling food to work. Ok, it’s not often that my food smells like butt, but I decided to bring in some mashed cauliflower with garlic, not realizing that I used way too much garlic. I heated this up in the microwave and it smelled horrible…but you don’t have to take my word for it.
