Dill Pickle

Ironically, you don’t relish the spotlight. You think of families like tuna salad, teams like Reubens, and you delight in playing the small roles that make the whole greater than the sum of its parts. Like all of us, you sometimes veer out of your lane, temporarily ending up in a cheesecake of a romantic relationship or a martini of a job. In the end, though, you always course-correct and prove yourself to be the salt (er, brine) of the earth—unlike your “sweet” cousin, who’s nothing but a self-delusional sellout.
