I am a quasi-professional maker of curry.  I expertly chop chicken and vegetables; the size and shape of the pieces are critical.  I am accomplished at picking out the best can of coconut milk at Walmart.  Despite appearances, subtle differences between the cans do exist, and I am particularly adept at the delicate task of negotiating the small mouth of the curry paste jar with a teaspoon.  In all honesty, my success at the art of making curry is probably due largely to inherent talent, but, as the adage goes, practice makes perfect, and perseverance has also played a role.  I make curry three, if not four, times a week.  My making curry has caused some consternation on the part of my boyfriend, a wonderful man in most regards, but one who has difficulty appreciating how truly gifted I am.  “Curry again?” is usually his response.  Alas, my ability to make excellent curry has not really extended itself to other culinary endeavors.
