Working the fry station is one of the most intense and thrilling jobs on the truck, because everyone depends on you to be really fast and efficient frying up chickpeas, eggplant, and fries. Sometimes you get burned. This one was the result of splashing oil from the bottom of the fry basket when I flipped fries into the bowl.
Chris says getting burned is a sign of an amateur. My mom might cry when she reads this post. But secretly I am kind of proud of the burn. I don’t know if any of you know what I mean, but I think it’s sort of a battle scar.
