WHY I STARTED LIKING MY STEPDAD

  1. He made me noodles and sauce
  2. Literally
  3. That's it. That's the moment. That's why.
  4. When I asked him if he used a microwave to heat the sauce and he said "No," I responded with "Are you a chef?"
  5. I never called him a nincompoop ever again...
  6. ...Or directed my biological father to his new address
  7. The whole raising, loving, and supporting me for the next 20 years thing really helped me keep it up
  8. But the noodles and sauce is our origin story
  9. Oh and my mom can kind of cook now
  10. But she was horrendous as a stressed out, 28-year-old single mother
