I know what you're all thinking, but keep reading ;)

There is a limit to how much guidance someone should offer, especially if he's not exactly a friend.

I used to really understand that sort of thing and be good at it, but had to work to even recall it just now. I wonder what happened.... My emotions have been all over the place lately, what with stress from moving home and my health which was better suddenly getting as bad as ever. I think the health issue is sensitivity to PCBs or whatever the new term is. The worst part is this chemical can evidently cross-contaminate other clothes in the wash. Well no, the worst part is my favourite blankets which I bought about 6 years ago. They're all synthetic and very cheap, (thus a likely source of PCBs,) have a 30°C wash label, and yet even the new washer-dryer I bought last year doesn't have a 30°C washing cycle. It seems very likely that 40°C is enough to liberate these chemicals and spread them about. But it seems those blankets aren't the only things to do that. :(

There there. We all go through things sometimes. I hope it gets better for you soon.

And yes, just as everyone is a parody of something anime related. Chef BonBon is a satire of the sensei in tournaments. Unlike the traditional anime teacher, he is not harsh nor does he always tower over you. He gives you space and lets you get it wrong because he gets that you will be ready to listen after and he encourages you to sort your feelings instead of bottling them up.

Thank you. :) I'm feeling a bit better about it now; it may not be so hard to avoid these chemicals after all.

I clearly haven't seen enough anime! :) But if this is satire, I'd far rather see satire than a harsh and towering original.

Where did I get my ideas of teaching gently... I think it must have been Jehovah's Witnesses.

I admit that BonBon is a satire on the anime sensei too. Unlike the kind that is borderline sadistic and egoist who overbearingly drill lessons into his students, BonBon gives them their space and acknowledges when they may be hurting. He gets that there are different paths to the same goal and there is no "one size fits all" way of making a person be better. That and people need to let their hurt pass over them.

And I bet his ego, he will mess up, lol

Oh yeah. Don't forget about two things: Number one, Warrick is a teenager, so he still has a lot to learn and number two, the more self-aware you are, the more unaware you could be at times.

Warrick bud you're like 16... Sure you made hundreds of mochi but were they good? :( With five hours and two mochi these have to be stellar

Now this is a perfect lesson for Warrick to learn from

Yep, not nice at all... not nice at all... :-|

Well... a hero must sometimes fall before they rise.

I think he needs to learn that this competition isn't about perfection. It's about intangibles.

Especially when it comes to baking competitions.
