So I arrived in Chicago this past summer to start my cool improviness program. I'm staying at a friend's place for a while -- a generous friend who made space for me. But there's a problem. This dude is 29 years old, not poor, and has no pots and pans!! Seriously, I told some other friends of mine in town about this, and they GAVE me a pot and a pan to donate to dude. That's too much. The refrigerator had beer, soda and condiments. I asked his girlfriend what he eats, and she said he just grills meat out on the deck. That's so triflin! Homey, cook something!!
