Welcome to the first edition of the new My Favorite! column, a weekly celebration of all things joyful. The parameters are simple. I asked some creative friends to write a few sentences about something that gives them great joy. Could be anything. An album or painting. Rainy days. Or in this case, food.
“When you think the vast cosmos is nothing but an immense exploded Gilbert Chemistry Set without intention or design, I present the cruel joke of bacon and eggs. The fact that bacon and eggs isn’t health food couldn’t just happen. Add to that the fact that just looking at bacon and eggs probably takes five minutes off your life and you know there must be a cackling sadist out there beyond the comprehension of our tiny slug brains. Bacon and eggs are the irresistible lover that will stab you in your sleep like the love child of Sharon Stone and Glenn Close.”
