Yesterday, the chef told me that my hat was dirty. He said that I needed to bleach it.
I guess the hat thing is news. Once the chefs realize that a cook is going to stick around for a while and not quit after the first few days, the cook is presented a white beret. It looks ridiculous, but it fits better than the paper hats. The cooks upstairs wear the tall hats.
My hat was dirty. This presents a challenge in that I don't own bleach, and I've never bleached an article of clothing. After I bought some bleach today, I realized that I didn't have any containers to hold it and my hat. The only thing that I had that could serve the purpose was a plastic ice cream container. I bought the ice cream when I bought the bleach. The next challenge was that the container was filled with ice cream. I did the sensible thing.
Now, my hat is soaking in bleach.
