Hot pepper relish, interlude

I’ve been crying about this pepper relish for the last hour. How it burns! I also used too much white wine vinegar.

–from Charlie Potato-Butter, who found a way to use the hot peppers from his mother’s garden.

Ode to Selfish People, interlude

To Mr. Dehydrated Orange, who, years ago, out of randomness, sent me a hateful note, turned out to be the jealous, crazy ex of the cute girl I met on Facebook once upon a time, back in a time when they didn’t have the anti-bullying policies they have today…or he would have never sent that note:

…It wasn’t that there’s something wrong with me, or that I’m soft, or that I’m cowardly. I tried to be nice, and there’s no point in arguing with ignorant people.

–from “Ode to Selfish People, Where Are You Today?” by Arthur Donovan “Cufflinks” Springs-Meyer, published by Morning Thoughtful Golfclub Press, Topeka, Kansas 2016.

Response to anger, interlude

..When the friends of your friends on Facebook, who don’t know you and are not going to listen or agree with what you wrote, give a response that would scald a dog, what do you do?..

..When I get a cutting response, at least ten immediate answers go through my mind. Had I been younger I would have said something crazy, but now I’m more hesitant..

..Now instead I think about it and don’t say anything. I’m not sure if it’s a wise choice or not, but I was brought up to treat people how I’d like to be treated.

–from John E. Sloth-Whittaker-June, author of “Responding to Angry Facebook: How not to hold a grudge.” Published on June, 2013.

Contrary to his advice, Mr. Sloth-Whittaker-June had a tendency to do just what he advised not to do.

Rumor has it he would make people on social media incensed on purpose, and then wrote down their responses to be written and later published in his book.

When asked about it in a Twitter response, Mr. Sloth-Whittaker-June angrily denied the claim.

Lemon Custard, interlude

..

Pie will fool you. About halfway through baking, it’ll tell you all these shenanigans about how we’re ready. Hey, we’re boiling over, or we’re gonna over-brown, better check the oven—-

..Look, it’s hot in there, the pie doesn’t like it, and knows since you made it you’ll give it some slack. The best love for pie is leave it in the oven the whole time it’s supposed to be in the oven..

When it’s really done, the pie will have a different tune then what it had halfway. It’ll be more honest..

–from a seminar entitled “How to be a better Pie Parent: Becoming a Better Baker with Tough Love,” by Renowned Baker Jeff “Porker” Charles-McTabby. Recorded live at a professional culinary expo in Charleston, SC, August 1985.

Mr. Charles-McTabby has since written a book on the subject.

Birthday, interlude

Birthdays are pleasant for presents, birthdays are pleasant for presents, birthdays are pleasant for presents, birthdays are pleasant for presents, birthdays are pleasant for presents!

From an exercise in the “Mayher Home Course of Ventriloquism,” the section under sound substitutions, in this case B is replaced with G, and P with K.
