I Can't Make Pancakes. I know this sounds like a joke, but I just tried to cook up some pancakes, and I seriously make pancakes worse than anyone in history ever has. I already knew that I'm a horrible cook, but this is just absurd. They were blackened on the outside - totally soggy on the inside, and they wrinkled and fell apart into a million pieces when I tried to flip them. For the love of God, someone give me a scholarship to Pancake University. I'm serously sad about this... the last of my pure maple is gone now because I wasted it on my freak pancake blobs. I just plain suck when it comes to flapjacks.
