Name a thing that you have done to your body or that has been done to your body. I’m thinking of everything from tattoo to job interview to surgery.
Or you can think of a thing you helped do/did to another body – taking a kid to get a shot or sanding down a car so it could be painted or ending a relationship or a baby shower.
Why? I was going to cook the steak on Wednesday night, so Tuesday morning I put in in a glass jar with whole cloves of garlic, slightly crushed, and a bit of deep brown mustard. I let it sit like that until I was ready for it. The meat, of course, was changed – made softer, spicier, more to my liking.
What did you do to the body to prepare it for what happened? Was it ritual or improvisation?
