DanAyo on Flops
Thus spake DanAyo, a goodly baker:
This is my new mantra! I love this.
Here's a man staring into the jaws of defeat and sees a victory. And he's no fool.
May beginners like me take note. This... is the name of the sourdough game. NEVER get discouraged!
This is a hobby for me. This is how it's SUPPOSED to be. Else, it's no stinkin' fun.
Embrace the challenge. Remember how even today I want to hit my f*#&@ing starter with a f!%@ing baseball bat because it won't f@&$ing bubble. I hate that starter. Bubble, you stupid starter! BUBBLE!
Remember why you took up a new hobby in Covid-ridden 2020. Look back at how far you've come and smile at the satisfaction of everything you've learned and the obstacles you've overcome. And always remember the sage wisdom of DanAyo and all the other bakers who have enjoyed the same success that you now enjoy today.
