While we’re on the subject of Halloween costumes…

muji spice book

Traveling with your spice rack is not ideal. This is why Japanese company, Muji, has made a book of spices to make flavoring your food while away from home a little bit easier.

This book from Muji is full of pages that are made of spiced paper, which dissolve from the heat and moisture of cooking. Now that kick of white pepper or red chili is just a tear away. And, since it is compact and perfectly portable, the Muji spice book is ideal for when you’re traveling!

     “The most important choice I ever made, the one that’s had the greatest impact on my life, was joining the Navy after high school. I grew up in a small town. My family never took vacations. They worked six days a week and went to church on the seventh.
     “The moment I joined the Navy in Indianapolis, they asked me, ‘Do you want to go to the Great Lakes in Chicago, or do you want to go to San Diego?’
     “I said, ‘San Diego, by all means.’
     ”Then, in the military, I travelled to Hong Kong, Japan, and the Philippines. That introduced me to different cultures, expanded me, and opened my horizons. As a consequence, I now get along with everybody. I’ve dated a Black woman, an Afghan woman, and a Filipina.
     “If I had stayed in my small town, I wouldn’t be the way I am today. Where I grew up, right here in White County, the people were all Caucasians— not a single minority in the whole county. Black people were not allowed to stay at a hotel. The nearest places you could see minorities were Lafayette—a few black students at Purdue University—and Logansport, with two or three families. When I moved to California, I was the minority in my apartment building.
     “Now I’ve been traveling extensively for the last eight years. I’ve been all over Asia and Eastern Europe. In November, I’m going on a trip across Russia.
     “Some of the people around here have travelled in the U.S., but they have no desire to travel abroad. The first thing they ask me is, ‘Aren’t you afraid?’ Afraid of what? I’m more afraid in East L.A. than in any of the countries I’ve visited. Some of them never interact with people from other cultures, and I think that’s sad in a way because we’re all human beings.”

So, I paint my nails pretty regularly these days. I also work as a barista/cashier pretty regularly these days. A few weeks back, I had a customer come in, a fairly typical, sheltered, suburban soccer mom, and she ordered a latte from me. She saw my brightly colored nails and said, “Wow, you’re so brave! My son asked me about painting his nails, and if it’s okay for boys to do that. Now I’ll tell him there’s a cool guy who does it too!” It was a nice moment, very cute.

Then, last week, she came in again, and said, “Hey, I’m so glad you’re here! I want you to meet someone!” She then brings her son forward, and says, “Okay sweetie, show him what you did!” And he throws his hands up, showing off his bright, sparkling blue nails. He shows them off, and I show mine off to him. He smiles. We fist bump.

Guys, I’ve only wanted to cry once at work before, and that was when someone ordered a large dry soy cappuccino on ice.

This time, though. This was a good cry.

"She taught me how to dance. We actually met at a graduation party. I was the only one not on the dance floor, and her friend bet her that she couldn’t get me to dance. I’d already said ‘no’ to ten girls, but she talked me into it. We were together 55 years. She died eight years ago, but I still dance every day."
