This may come as a shock to some, but I am pretty afraid of knives.
Yeah, I KNOW!
All would say, "Maria, you are a cook. How can you fear knives yet use them all the time?"
Well, when I use them I am usually pushing down nerves and trying to stay focused on the task. I don't like people touching me while I am slicind and dicing. It scares me to possibly cut myself.
Yup, I am creeping myself out just writing this.
Ok. I am done. :)
