If I Make Veggie Skewers and Don’t Post a Photo on Instagram, Did I Make the Skewers?

I find the recipe in a cookbook as I aspire to make healthy food for myself at home.

I drive to the supermarket to buy zucchini and baby tomatoes.

I wash and dry the veggies.

I slice the zucchini with great care.

I soak the bamboo skewers for half an hour so they don’t burn in the oven.

I thread five skewers with alternating pieces of zucchini and tiny tomatoes.

I stare lovingly at the pretty thing I made.

I panic.

I feel a deep sadness.

I am alone in my kitchen. No one else is around or coming over soon to witness my creation. What can I do?

I take out my phone and snap a picture in the terrible lighting on my counter.

I post the picture of the zucchini and tomato skewers on Instagram.

I wait.  2 likes, 3, 4. OK good. Now my beautiful skewers officially exist.

I put them in the oven.
