Of course, you can think that. Go ahead. I did too when I first arrived and saw the carrots and limes and potatoes and milk and yoghurt and heard all about how they could be grated or mashed or roasted or sliced or poured over cereal or mixed with eggs.
I heard all about their potential too, their versatility, how they could be this and that and wouldn’t it be nice, after living in the soil or in a vat or truck, to really make a difference and make those human’s happy.
Well, that’s fine. You will make them happy. You’ll give them everything they want. But don’t expect anything in return. And don’t expect to be fried or sliced or dolloped. And especially don’t expect to be smeared around the edges of a pan before getting it on with some cake mixture. Not with this guy, anyway.
You’ll be spread on toast and bread. And that’s it. The butter over there gets put in pots and pans and smeared with cake mixture. All you’ll have is burnt crumbs sitting on top of you making you itch.
Which is fine, I suppose, if you know that’s all you can hope for.
