Too much of self-evaluation.
This is a criticism I have got for my blogs -- the personal stuff.
Perhaps there is some truth in it.
The problem with onions is that you keep peeling the skin and then you don't realise when you have come to the insides until tears flow down your cheeks.
I read somewhere that if you chew on gum while onion peeling, then you can prevent the tears.
The problem is I always end up making bubbles and they burst right in my face.
