Do I have any failings that require covering up? I hope not. That said, I think the last thing I failed at was making a pot of rice that was too salty. I covered that up by adding plantain to it. The sweet complimented the salty. How’s that for a cover up?
No, but seriously, I don’t try to cover up my failings, I try to fix them before they become a problem. And if I can’t fix it, I admit it and accept the consequences.
