I’ve spent the last few weeks living out of a suitcase.

Here, there and everywhere.

I’ve been to New York, Florida, the beautiful distant shores of Alabama and a few other places in between.

I’ve seen the ocean at sunrise and almost randomly got attacked by Cookie Monster in Times Square and feasted on local seafood and toured an historic home and shopped at salvage yards and Target and watched actors dance across the stage at a Broadway play.

I mean….it’s not the good candy.

That’s long gone.

It’s the random generic foil covered chocolate eggs and left over pieces of taffy and the black licorice.

The bottom of the barrel.

Not that I would know anything about left over Easter candy like that.

That was simply a purely rhetorical question.

After all….remember….we eat Bok Choy around here.  🙂Continue reading
