My new rice cooker is so amazing! It makes all kinds of rice perfectly and easily, without any boil overs, ever. But I never had one or even wanted before Matthew came home from his freshman year of college.
Why do I own a rice cooker? I own a rice cooker because Matthew goes to a tech school that is world-famous for its science curriculum, and many of his fellow students are Asian and Asian-Americans.
Yup .. that’s it. “All his friends” had them, and Matthew asked for a rice cooker this summer when he returned home. And then in the fall, he took the rice cooker back to school.
After using Matthew’s rice cooker all summer, I missed it, so I went and bought myself my very own Red Rival 6-cup Rice Cooker.
Isn’t it funny … the small unrelated consequences of larger cultural movements?
