101 Ways to Cook a Hamburger was the story of a young man fighting through the trials of an adolescence containing uncertain sexual preference. Our main character initially wants to change himself to be straight, and finds out he can't after all. I liked this story less than the Beard reading, again because of its not so exciting nature. I honestly don't even have that much to say about this essay because it is a nice little story of finding one's-self but there is no real excitement or theatrics. My favorite part was definitely the dictionary paranoia freakout where he skips from Homer to homosexual hitting every word in between, just from straight paranoia. Not my cup of tea, necessarily.
