Cook, a cultural introduction

Getting to know the word from all angles...

Michal's wrestling with the thought of beefing up his lowly Fiction Corpus with a coffee table book describing affordable art; cites fatigueDictionary icon

I think highly of the feasibility of implementing English as a worldwide lingua franca. I don't trust in the altogether average scheme by which the English language is taught.Pointer

Fine-tuning one's dexterity with a language isn't like developing a rounder wheel. A language isn't merely an instrument that you can teach yourself to use with a greater amount of precision. A spoken tongue can not be parted from the competing values of a society of which it is a description. A language isn't recited; it happens - and keeps happening as long as a circle of people keeps using it.

Teaching a pupil to recite English is to strip her of its cultural context. A proper teacher has to prepare a plan for introducing it; the prudent student ventures out to seek it.

A dictionary - properly used - can become an influential tool. The best dictionaries describe a language based on a particular corpus, a body of written works of varying size and consistency. Such a corpus could contain everything from a book about literature to some famous short stories translated into modern English. I lost many a night forging my "gallant" Fiction Corpus in order to form a specific type of dictionary based on the ability of one man to tell a story in myriad forms. It is a labor of love and listening.

I have drawn up a million words and I have divided them, reshaping them - not simply to teach a tongue but to defend the human soul, and to propel that spirit or soul not just to recite but to happen.

Help Replace Defamation With Truth in ArtOne of Margo's pictures from our trip across Europe.

Strength and dignity are her clothing...

Proverbs 31:25

Author's Note: I have been enjoined from sharing the details of my true romance adventure until such time that the other party is prepared to present her perspective on the affair arrangement...Pointer

Four days after I arrived in Poland, the largely Catholic country was celebrating Corpus Christi, complete with solemn processions down the street. Three days later I had made a solemn vow that if given the chance to express it, I would show love to a woman I had only just met.

Though I felt fully formed as a writer, and had been trained in visual language, it was my first time with a professional camera in my hands. I was just learning the ins and outs and had come to Europe to find as diverse a selection of subject matter as possible, preferably something that fit my aesthetic devotion to promoting body acceptance. Enter Margo.

I was from America, land of the free...home of the brave. She carried the weight of Old Europe...domestic and religious poverties...stifled creativity. Anger. Sadness. Yearning.

Each man grows up with his own kind of poverty. Even if he's got a warm house and plenty of food and a soft bed and plenty of entertainment, there's always something that a man needs. Sometimes he just needs to be listened to, if only by the birds and the trees, but preferably by another man, even if he's an artist from America who isn't very good at listening. By learning how to listen, we learn how to cooperate. By cooperating, we build a better world. In a better world, there are no devils to abuse us. A better world doesn't lend itself to abuse because a better world is populated by people who have learned how to listen.

THE DISAPPEARING WOMAN, THE DISAPPEARING MAN...Pointer

a collection of modern art prints and posters

During our trip across Europe, Margo very bravely opened up to me and to the camera. It was a difficult thing to do considering the scars that she carries. I wanted to share with the world her often joyful, often sad, often angry but always liberating experience except that the Internet is full of pictures of naked women and men and full of trolls who abuse them.

I realized that what I really need to point out is not the openness that Margo and I cultivated between ourselves, but the darkness that continues to surround us. When I censor nudity, I do so in a way that does not compromise the integrity of the human body. In censoring the photographs that Margo and I took during our trip, I was quick to notice that in those pictures where Margo was at her most open, at her most unguarded and most relaxed, in a word, when she was herself and basking in the sun I was forced to blacken her completely.

Why does our society drive people into darkness? Why can we not accept ourselves as we are? Why can we not accept our bodies? Have we truly become eunuchs? Or are we capable of defying the sickness that pits us against each other? Together we could conquer the devils that abuse us.

Whether you enjoy being nude or not, whether you've been photographed nude or not, but especially if, for you, like for Margo, it's something you never thought you would do, consider submitting your own photograph to be published in a censored manner as a form of protest against the ubiquitous presence of the human body on the internet, naked or not, that is published and duplicated ad infinitum without context and without regard for the identity or the needs of the individual being depicted.

Michal's Dictionary:
Understanding the word Cook

A word can represent many things. First and foremost it represents a type of gesture. A specific way of speaking. A specific way of inscribing a mark. A specific way of moving your hand. To know one of these kinds of gestures is to know how to pronounce the word cook in some kind of way.

If you want to communicate an idea using the word cook, you will need to know what other people are made to think when you make the gesture. You will never have complete awareness of or control over the associations or identities that are invoked by a set of words, but you can know what was and what is a single word's jointly accepted definition, at least for a given place, thereby tracing a direction which will help you to understand what kinds of associations and identities are driving its use.

By using the word yourself, you enter into a long-standing albeit oftentimes unconscious debate over its definition, forever entangling yourself into the history of its use. The way you use it, and which other words you use it with carries weight.

The more you know about where the word cook is located in the fabric of a language, the better you will be at exploiting its cultural power.

Usage of Cook in The Gospel of Jesus H.

A picture of the planet Mars

An experimental science fiction Christology that makes Jesus the hard boiled narrator of his own early years on a bizarro earth made dark by volcanic ash and informally ruled by a man from Mars who sells bottled air.

In the history of litigation, nobody had ever dared bring such a case before the International Court of Justice. The main reason was 'contributory negligence,' something which the defendants could easily plead, seeing as how few people could legitimately claim that they had never done anything to contribute to the world's air pollution. Here is where your grandfather's genius came through: he had never let your grandmother drive a car; she had never operated any kind of combustion engine; she had never even made a fire, having always cooked on electric stoves; she was immaculate, having spent most of her life in bed, never having owned a house, and therefore never having had to heat one with coal or gas - she was perfect.

Verse 60 from the chapter called Adolescence

"When I was commanding the resistance in Wroclaw," he said, "my cousin Sapper came to join up. Now, despite the fact that he was my cousin - and I was planning on making him my cook - I made him take the test just like every other volunteer. Each prospective Confederate was made to sweep a random house for terrorists all by himself - never knowing whether or not the house had just been swept. They invariably were, of course, but when Sapper was sent inside the Rathaus - you know what the Rathaus is, right? You're from Germany."

Zoe nodded. "Town Hall," she said.

Verses 736-737 from the chapter called Security

"'She's a domestic,' I said. He laughed his head off. 'That's right, boy: they cook and clean and take out your garbage and you'll find out the rest when you're older.' He started walking away laughing. 'Wait!' I yelled. 'What about the story?'

Verse 60 from the chapter called Childhood

Jesus became more and more like his father: lying in bed, wasting away, not talking. Fewer people came to their apartment - there was no use: Jesus just didn't respond. He would either shrug his shoulders imperceptibly or make a strange grunt, which didn't mean yes or no: it only meant he wasn't listening to you and you were supposed to know that. Even his uncle's wife, who used to come every other day to cook them dinner, started coming less and less often. Jesus didn't care - he just listened to his radio all day long. Jesus's father had heroin; Jesus had a radio. Everyday, there was more news about terrorism.

Verse 674 from the chapter called Adolescence

"Some time last year it was. She was here, in this room; she cooked us dinner: sauerkraut with beans - vegetarian style. She left the meat in the barn, she said. That was a good woman. It's too bad we'll never have another calf again."

"Why not?"

Usage of Cook in Sex for Children

A drawing of a man between a woman's legs in front of another man in a hospital bed

A literature book narrated by a pair of siblings on either side of the Atlantic whose profoundly weird sexual experiences pose a serious challenge to their traditional understanding of mathematicians, marriage, gay young men and God.

There were two books put aside separately. One was the New Testament; the other was an Hungarian cookbook. Both of them had seen a lot of use, but they were beautifully bound. The New Testament was a special edition, in two languages: Hungarian and English. I opened the book to the Gospels and, sure enough, one side of the page was Hungarian and the other side English. There were notes penciled all over the margins, and some serious underlining; difficult vocabulary words on either side were circled and referenced. The Gospels were heavily marked up, so were the Acts of the Apostles. I turned to something a bit more out of the way: the First Letter to Timothy, Chapter Five - that too was marked up. I was impressed. I wondered whether Albert had learned more English or more theology.

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 1, The First Day, Part 1, Victory & Calendar Reform, Section 7, Revealing Literature, Paragraph 3

Returning the book to its place, I picked up the cookbook. It too was heavily marked up, but the notes were in Hungarian. On the first page was a handwritten dedication to Albert, dating from nineteen sixty-two. It was from his grandparents, but that was all that I could decipher.

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 1, The First Day, Part 1, Victory & Calendar Reform, Section 7, Revealing Literature, Paragraph 4

INDIE: Oh, they are alright. But they are his friends and Albert is making me do all the work. So, because I am inviting you, you will be my guest, and you will have to keep me company when I am cooking.

ANDY: I won't have to do anything, will I?

Bullets whizzing by a statue of Nikola Tesla

A collection of stories featuring a sexy Parisian ghost, a spooky Moon base full of vagina-faced aliens, a policeman with an Irish name, a truck full of watermelons, a flautist, and a man who has to see another man about a diseased horse.

At first, Patsy would squat down and humbly clean himself, paying particularly close attention to "over there." Seeing that this was the method favored by women and not by most men, by the time he visited the Dai-Kannon of Izu, and stayed in the shadow of Mount Fuji, Patsy's skill had increased so dramatically, he was able to stride into the bathing area, swoop down, grab a ladle without disturbing its bucket, splash his genitalia with what little water was there, the way a cook might add a bit of garlic to his Zampone, and, with a flick of the wrist, deposit the ladle in yet another bucket before crying "banzai" and cannonballing into the water. Though superficially disgusted by this when they were together, when alone, the ladies seemed to admire it.

– from “A Cop Named Patsy,” a funny story featuring a cop who takes a liking to certain Japanese customs

Tae speared three of the largest crabs he could find. He brought them to Bo. She refused to look at them. Tae went about making a fire. By dusk, he had cooked two of the crabs. He ate them with pleasure. Bo sat motionless the entire time. Tae thought, "Hunger will move her."

In the morning, she was still sitting cross-legged with her hands in her lap. Tae went to her. "Come," he said. He held out his arm. "Have breakfast."

A real play. With drama in it. Talk fast. It takes two hours. Set in a guest house. In a small community. After a murder. Lots of suspicion. The characters learn to listen to each other. It's funny.

GREY GOOSE: Are you saying you didn't squeal to the Aussies?

MS. JACKSON: I'm saying I didn't have to.

GREY GOOSE: Swear to me that you said nothing.

MS. JACKSON: I won't.

GREY GOOSE: Swear to it.

MS. JACKSON: No.

GREY GOOSE: Swear on the Holy Book.

MS. JACKSON: There will be no such swearing in my house.

MS. JACKSON: My God. They're having sex in my kitchen.

LESBIAN: You don't know that.

MS. JACKSON: What else could it be? My husband's been trying to get into my cook's panties since the day I hired her: the lecherous old goat. Homo!

LESBIAN: What?

MS. JACKSON: Go in there.

LESBIAN: Me?

MS. JACKSON: Yes.

LESBIAN: What do I say?

MS. JACKSON: Nothing. They'll scatter like the snakes they are.

LESBIAN: Are you sure?

MS. JACKSON: Homo! Be strong. Take courage. Do it for my sake.

LESBIAN: I don't want to embarrass your cook.

MS. JACKSON: Hasn't she done enough to embarrass herself? Walking around here like a pixie. Who do you think she was posing for? Me?

– ACT I, lines 957-962

FLETCHER: Bigger than your husband.

LESBIAN: Or so I'm told. I didn't actually see them. What I saw was smaller: about six or seven feet. They had these big beaks and enormous eyes made from concentric circles: each circle colored differently from the next. They looked like crazed chickens dancing around like that. Of course, with masks so big, the focus turns to a dancer's legs, the swaying of his hips-

MS. JACKSON: And everything in between.

ALICE: Ms. Jackson!

LESBIAN: His arms are busy holding up the mask.

MS. JACKSON: I'm not surprised: making women do the work.

LESBIAN: I wonder if any Polynesians use a big mask. Would your cook know?

MS. JACKSON: Probably not. Where is my cook? Does she know the kitchen still needs cleaning?

FLETCHER: Why are you looking at me?

GREY GOOSE: No swearing.

MS. JACKSON: That's right.

GREY GOOSE: Do you deny that you betrayed me?

MS. JACKSON: I deny nothing.

GREY GOOSE: Must you persist in this contempt for my personal dignity?

MS. JACKSON: Where was this concern for dignity when you were molesting my cook?

GREY GOOSE: You are grossly mistaken.

MS. JACKSON: I'm the one who had to listen to her weep.

"By the time my children grow up, that world will have faded. I'm telling you. Try to learn from my experience. Take a freighter to Europe. Cook with a coal furnace. Write a letter with a nib. You will learn something.

"Maybe you think I'm crazy. You think I never lived like that. I grew up on a farm in a poor village. I was the first member of my family to be born in a hospital."

– from “St. Andrew's Eve,” a story of love that may help overcome one's fears depending on your outlook

Sir Lewis walked down the marbled hall with head held high. A sense of incipient triumph wafted between smells of old paper posters and crusty deli sandwiches and stale cookies munched on by bejacketed professors and parents out for an open house weekend. The poor fools had no idea a champion marched amongst them.

– from “The Skirt on the Proctor,” a kid story about building attachments in an unforgiving world

Sir Lewis and the Asian girl were soon joined by a third man. Daniel. A total dork. But not completely unskilled. The Asian girl had gotten better too. And slimmer. She was wearing skirts now just like the proctor had before the proctor got pregnant. She was hot, as Daniel put it. And she had a beautiful name. Miss Day.

That year Sir Lewis, Miss Day, and Daniel placed third in the Math Olympiad. Sir Lewis was in love. He promised Miss Day they would do better the next year. And they did. They won.

It's natural to hide dirty things. They're embarrassing. But we need to keep in mind that when we hide things that are difficult, we make them seem dirty when they're really something else entirely. And when we keep things that are easy in plain sight, we make them seem clean when they really aren't. That is dangerous.
