The Internet makes us dumb. Yes it does. “How?”
you might say. Well, let me explain to you what happened to me just the other morning.
I was almost out of waffle mix. Ok? I have this nice bag of premixed waffle mix. All
I do is add water, put it in the waffle-making thing, wala, I have waffles. But I was almost
out of mix and I was like, “Uh! What do I do? Look it up!” Except for I couldn’t look
it up. I didn’t have any Internet. Ok, so I was like, “Ok, I would normally just look
up what to do if you almost run out of waffle mix.” And then I was thinking to myself, “This
is so stupid. You should know what to do if you almost run out of waffle mix, Jesi. Come
on! It’s just a waffle.” And that’s when it hit me, I can’t even make waffles without
the Internet. Yeah, I have Internet Dependence Disorder. IDD. Because like every time I need
to know something I don’t think about it too hard. I don’t sit and ponder and talk about
it with somebody and say, “You know I think it’s this way,” or “You know I think it’s
that way.” No! You know what we do? We say, “I’ll google it.” And then we google it. And
did you notice that typing is now thumbing. I didn’t say google it. I said google it.
Everything’s changing y’all. Everything’s changing and we’ve gotta make sure our brains
are ready for the future. Alright, so what are we gonna do? We’re gonna take a stand
against IDD. I’m gonna make waffles from scratch…all the way with no premixes. Ok, except for I’m
not gonna use regular flour. I’m gonna use self-rising flour, but let’s not talk about
that. I’m an American. Ok, so I’m gonna make waffles from scratch and roll it! I’m gonna
mix everything up in this clear bowl and wear this pretty pink apron I got from Oaxaca.
I only wanna make one or maybe two waffles so I’m gonna use a half a cup of flour, one
egg, and just some milk. Cracking this egg on camera makes me nervous! Oh yeah! I got
it! Perfect. Now, I just have to wash my hands and remember what I have to do next. Oh yeah,
milk. Now all my ingredients are together, the flour, the egg, and the milk and now I
need something to stir with, a fork. I could use a whisk, but I didn’t have one handy.
I’m not really a measuring-cup kind of cook. So, let the mixing, pouring, and mess making
begin. Oh yeah, I knew I’d be needing some more milk. I’ll pour in a little milk and
mix mix mix some more. So, if these waffles end up tasting good you (had) better believe
I’m actually going to remember how I made ’em, you know. And if I’d used the Internet
and just looked up some random recipe, no, I wasn’t gonna remember that and that was
going to make me Internet Dependent. I had to coat the grill with a little bit of nonstick
cooking spray. Then I can pour in the waffle mix. Now I’m gonna flip it over and do the
same thing on the other side. This is a double waffle maker. How sweet! My aunt once told
me that the rubber spatula is a million-dollar kitchen tool because it saves you a million
dollars. How cool is that? Now we just wait on the beep. I’m coming. I’ll be right there.
I’m coming. I’ll be right there. Just listen to that sizzle. With more practice I’m sure
this waffle will be picture perfect, but for right now this waffle looks dang good. The
other beep ought to go off any time now. Perfect timing. See, I wasn’t too impatient. It’s
time to give these two waffles the butter and syrup treatment they deserve. Go easy
on the syrup now! That stuff’s fattening! I hope it tastes good! Alright, my homemade
from…away from Internet waffles… How do I say this? The waffles I made in order to
protect myself against IDD look wonderful, but how do they taste? That’s the question.
Will these be Jesi treats or dog treats? Mardi looked at me when I said dog treat. Did you
know what a dog treat is? Let’s dig in! I made waffles! Haha! Without the Internet!
Oh my gosh! And they taste great. Ok, all I did y’all was one egg, a little bit of self-rising
flour, and milk…made it a little soupy, poured it in that nice waffle maker thing
that y’all saw that I had, and it turned out great! Ok, I just need some strawberries.
Anybody got any strawberries? You got any strawberries? You got some strawberries? Have
you got any strawberries? Do you have any strawberries? I can’t keep ’em all straight!
You got any strawberries? I don’t have any strawberries, but I (have) got waffles. Thanks
