You need this so people think that sometimes you don't order delivery.
A house with no cookware instantly gets you preachy parents and judgy-yet-well-meaning-yet-self-centered friends. "What do you eat?" they say. "Do you just eat out all the time?" Their voice is like a chirping bird, brutal and inconsistent. "How can you survive on someone else's food? Who does that? Is that how we raised you?" And then you have to justify yourself. In your own home. Save yourself from that fate. Buy some cookware.
