Food Porn Hotline: Episode 2

You know what I‘m doing right now?

I’m eating a sugar cookie. Just baked.

As my teeth touch the outside crust, it is crisp and buttery, and oh so sweet and light.

The crust yields, willingly, allowing my teeth to breach its wall and enter into the almost molten joy that eagerly anticipates my hungry lips and tongue.

It is like eating a white cloud, kissed by a lemon sun, crunching though a crystal ice-like shower of sugar on the top, and finding the soft and moist and lovely and warm center inside. And I’m drinking tea, a clear, hot, amber elixir, full of health and goodness.

I don’t add any sugar or jam to the tea. Or lemon.

The cookie has all of the sugar and lemon I need. The tea is just slightly bitter, but not the kind of remorseful bitterness that comes from a passing moment of engaging in wanton culinary ecstasy, no.

Just a slight bitterness that complements and balances the happy sweetness and fatness of the cookie, thus utilizing every taste bud on my tongue.

Yes, that’s what I’m doing, right now.

  2. Hi seanymph. All is reasonably well, I suppose. We had a major computer crash and I had to reinstall everything. Luck though, what I didn't back up on cds I saved online. Mostly pictures, but lots of software to reinstall. We also had a birthday for our youngest, but mostly, it's just been busy busy busy.
    I hope everything has worked out for you concerning your family. I am in the process of writing a very angry rant. My daughter is being told, no, TAUGHT BY PROFESSORS that because she is white, she is responsible for all the racism in the world, and only white people are racists. I asked if she believed this, and she rolled her eyes at me. We were working together on a stinging rebuke, and if you will pardon, a HAIL AND HEARTY FUCK YOU ALL TO HELL response to the evil nonsense being taught on her campus. I hope the essay angers, infuriates and stirs up a hornet's nest, because I. Just. Don't. Care anymore.
    So right now, I am tracking down all the links and all the materials she is using to prove my point. Stay tuned, dear! It's gonna be a bumpy night!

    The question, O Sheik, is "Can I have some more?"
