I really like onions especially roasted or cooked, and I love onion soup. The only trouble is you have to peel a lot of onions and that is really a catastrophe. As soon as I start peeling, I start to cry like mourning women which are hired in Sicily to cry on a funeral. My make up is melting and I black waterfall is running over my cheeks, which makes me look like a sad clown.
I have tried everything to avoid this crying, putting cotton wool around my glasses, peeling under running water and all other tricks and tips which were given to me. Nothing to do I still cried.
Finally I found the solution ! I draped a long shawl around my head and over my nose found a pair of diving googles from my son and put it over my eyes. I looked terrifying and was scared of myself when I saw me in the mirror. Well equipped now I started peeling and it nearly worked, my eyes still burned a bit, but it was supportable.
One day the doorbell rang and completely forgetting my strange outfit, I went to the door and opened it. It was the postman with a registered letter. The poor man stepped back when he saw me and nearly got a heart attack. But then he burst out in laughter and asked me what I am doing.
I peel onions, I said !
This is also a solution !
