Pancakes

I’ve never really liked pancakes, besides as a delivery vehicle for maple syrup. 

I’ve never really liked school dances, except as a way to try and dance with my crush.

I’ve never really liked grading student papers, except as a way to keep my job as a teacher.

I’ve never really liked basketball games, except as a way to bond with my family and eat nachos. 

That last one might not be entirely true – I did enjoy the Golden State Warriors championship run. Regardless, if you’re experiencing one thing to really experience something else, why not just cut out the middleman and go right to what you’d like to do?
