Who Is Cooking?

We have an unsaid rule in our house
We must take turns to cook
I cook ethnic food and he cooks American food

I used to cook everyday
Until his confession one day
I. cannot. eat. rice. any. more

Because his looks is VERY deceiving
He looks Asian
But his grandparents came here in the 1880's
And he was raised in a Jewish neighborhood

So whenever I cooked
He used to make sure to smell the food
Before he puts it into his mouth
As if his nose could smell the danger
Of Asian food
Although my mom still believes that
He can actually understand Japanese
....Because it MUST be in his blood

It is NOT

So we take turns to cook
Because two Asians sometimes doesn't mean two Asians
It can be two cooks in a house :)
