What do have to do to be a cook?

In order to be a cook, you have to love food. You have to be open to taste all things...even an octopus with peanut butter on it. Or a pickle with peanuts. You have to have a stable stomach like me. You can't puke often. You should always clear your plate at the dinner table. If you want to actually cook, you have to have a good cook book, the supplies, and try and get a lesson or watch the Food channel. You have to be able to try new things in order to succeed. Maybe it might be weird things that nobody would think of, but you have to leave it up to your imagination.
