An Open Thank You Letter To Potatoes

Nothing is more perfect than you, potato.

An Open Thank You Letter To Potatoes
Dana Shultz

Dear potatoes,

You must be confused and wondering why you got a letter from someone who eats you. Well, when I look back on my life, you have always been a big part of it. I cannot thank you enough for all the times you've made me so happy. I'm writing this letter to let you know how wonderful you are.

They say that no one is perfect, but you prove that wrong. You're wonderful when you're boiled, roasted, mashed, scalloped, and fried (tater tots, hash browns, French fries, curly fries, waffle fries, chips and more). You can even be distilled and become vodka! You are flawless and never fail to impress me.

Another thing that I love about you is that you are amazing by yourself, but also a great team player. Look at you go in potato salad, gnocchi, corn chowder, shepherd's pie, etc.. You can even go well with any kind of flavoring, too! Not to mention the dream team made by you and gravy. Every Thanksgiving, I'm thankful for all the food but especially you.

In the morning, I eat eggs with hash browns. For lunch, I have a sandwich with fries. And then some chips for snacks and a steak with some mashed potatoes for dinner. If I were perfect as you, I would be a diva and act like I'm the main dish and seek more attention, but you're so chill and unobtrusive. I've never seen anything more mature but also badass than you, potatoes.

Thank you for making my day better.

Thank you for keeping me alive.

Thank you for being always there for me and never leaving me.

Thank you for making everything else more delicious.

Thank you for existing.

You make the world a better place and inspire so many of us to be better people. When someone tells me that I look like a potato, I'm taking that as a compliment.

I hope you know now how wonderful you are and don't let anyone make you believe that you are less than what I'm saying. Happiness is a choice, and that's why I choose you!

Lots and lots of love,

The Superbowl is the biggest football event of the year, and the 50-year history of the competition has seen a lot of memorable moments. The event first began in 1967, when the first AFL-NFL World Championship Game was played in Los Angeles. Since then, the NFL has grown from a small regional competition to an international phenomenon. Over the course of the last 50 years, the Superbowl has seen some amazing plays, memorable moments and incredible records. This includes Tom Brady's record of five Superbowl titles, the first time the Patriots won three consecutive championships, and the Steelers' record of six Superbowl titles. The event has also become a cultural phenomenon, with millions of people tuning in each year to watch the big game. There are now commercials, halftime shows, and other events that make the Superbowl a true American spectacle.

11 Genres Of Music That Originated From Black Culture

Numbers don't lie, up in the charts many times, black culture has defined the music industry. Music is a worldly language that can be understood by people all over the world. You bet black culture has taken over the music industry, but not from the way you may think. I'm not talking about their prominent presence in the rap game, but the origins of eleven different genres of music. Black culture is always using their heritage and ancestral knowledge to transmute the current energy to a higher frequency. Personally, I'm not surprised that many of these music genres have originated from black culture. Thankfully, I've been able to grow up in a diverse environment. I can only thrive in a diversity of friends.
