Happy Birthday!

Candy never relieves the monotony of long family car trips half as well as an impromptu dispensation of sausages and cheese.

Robert Farrar Capon


Conversation overheard this week:

Me: Honey, what do you want me to make you for your birthday breakfast?

He: Bacon and shausage.

Me: Okay. What do you want for your birthday lunch?

He: Hmmm. . . . Bacon and shausage.

Me: Oh. Okay. How about dinner?

He: You know that shausage with the plastic wrapping?

Me: Oberle? From Missouri?

He: Yeah, yeah. That’s it. That’s what I want.

Capon understands six-year-old carnivores. Happy birthday, my dear one!
