Domesticated Fire Goddess

“Cooking is one of the distinguishing features of the human species. In almost all societies, domestication of fire is what sets us apart.” (Murcott, 1995).

After lecture my friend Joanne and I hit the Australia Pub for a couple of glasses of wine. We talked about aging, starting over, weight, money, and men. Four hours later I announced that Murcott’s theory was wrong. “Well” Joanne asked me, “what do you think distinguishes us from other animals?”

I think it’s our very unique ability to get the cork out of the bottle.
