PEN&INKee^POSSIBILITIESee^:There is always something to celebrate

-A A +A
By Kirsten Laskey

There are those who never want to share their stories, at least not publicly. When the newspaper featured “Man on the Street” every Sunday, it was a real chore for the reporter to scour the sidewalks in search of willing participants to answer a question. To make it easier on people, the questions were simplified: “Who would you like to win the World Series?” or “How often to do you wash your car?” The editorial staff was stumped when some people would refuse to answer those questions. It was as if these individuals believed their daily thoughts and routines were not good enough to share with the rest of us.

They couldn’t be more wrong. It’s fascinating what can happen in the span of just a few days.  If you look closely in enough places, it’s amazing what you will discover.

Take last Tuesday, for instance. I made my first-ever baked good on Jan. 19. Sure, it came from a brownie mix that I bought at the grocery store, but I still needed to mix in the eggs and water and study the batter as it baked in the oven. I was thrilled to see when I pierced through the brownies with the top half of a matchstick (I have no toothpicks so I needed to get creative) no uncooked batter coated the stick of wood.
