I like the PoMo version with just syrup, some whipped cream stirred in, then slowly fill the glass up with seltzer while gently stirring. That’s how we did it when I worked at the JCC deli, back in the days right after college.
I got a BFA, BTW. If I had it to do all over again I’d skip all that and become a plumber or something else important.
I like the subgenre of the Blues which is centered around trains and the wandering life. I always thought that I would like to be an engine driver, riding the rails. Or failing that some other solitary kind of job, like a lighthouse keeper.
Anyone else a lighthouse maven? I’ve seen many of them and hope to stay in one of the few that offers overnight visit.
I also have a BFA and I like home projects but I don’t like working in crawlspaces, so no plumbing for me. What I’d really like to have been is an architect. A lot of my choices in college were driven by my complete and totally inability to sleep on a normal schedule (the doctor calls it Delayed Sleep Phase Syndrome).
Anyone else find their life just completely derailed by their failure to be A Morning Person?
I’m a morning person who [ahem] “married out.” But he still likes me.
One helpful life change is the deli which moved in 4-5 blocks away. One of us brews the coffee and the other takes a walk and picks up Saturday breakfast for two. (Which is one plate, since the portions are so big and we’re both old people now.) When this system works properly, we can actually get ourselves breakfast almost 15 minutes before lunchtime!
I used to be very much a night owl, but as I’ve gotten older my awake hours have slowly migrated to starting earlier and earlier. I suspect it’s my body’s way of preparing me for old age so that I have maximum lucid hours before sundowning kicks in.
Or really anything? My local has an avocado tempura roll with a walnut chili sauce that is absolutely addictive. The phone guy there who does the carryout orders + me is the best relationship I’ve had in years!
The last time I sat down inside a restaurant to eat was my birthday in March 2019. It was the same sushi place. When was the last time you cruised into a food place and had a seat?
