If we look closely at what may appear to be a misogynistic move on the surface (telling a woman what she should and should not do) is just really a few characters short of a sitcom.

I Can Taste the Disinterest

I love food, I love eating. I just enjoy eating what others have made more than I enjoy personally leaning against the counter, peeling potatoes or dreamily smiling as my sauce starts to simmer. I am bored. I believe I can taste the disinterest, I just don't care enough.
