Do they just sit there and do nothing?
Do they try to taste-test everything?
Do they ensure my wine glass remains full at all times?
You know, the important things*.
Also, I always cook one of three dishes – Chicken & Chorizo Paella, Chorizo and Red Wine Gnocchi, or Beef Biriyani. Which one I cook depends on how much I like the person.
To my point, last night I had a young man over for dinner** and made paella, and as a side dish decided to do this. It’s quick, easy, and even more important it’s fucking delicious.
*One guy decided it was ok to go have a nap whilst I was cooking... He obviously didn't end up staying for dinner.
**No, he didn't pass judgement - be brought Riesling. I hate Riesling.
