The Beginning

"If u ever peeled an onion, then u know tht the 1st thin, papery layer reveals another thin, papery layer, and tht layer reveals another, and another, and before you know it you have hundreds of layers all over the kitchen and thousands of tears in ur eyes, sorry tht u ever started peeling in the 1st place and wishing tht u had left the onion alone to wither away on the shelf of the pantry while u went on with ur life, even if tht meant never again enjoying the complicated overwhelming taste of this strange n bitter vegetable.."
