Towers of meat  AUG 02 2002

If I led a more interesting life, had a more eccentric family, was 15 years older, gay, and a whole lot funnier, David Sedaris and I would practically be the same person. His description of restaurant dining in "Today's Special" from Me Talk Pretty One Day hits very close to home for me:

"I've never thought of myself as a particularly finicky eater, but it's hard to be a good sport when each dish seems to include no fewer than a dozen ingredients, one of which I'm bound to dislike. I'd order the skirt steak with a medley of suffocated peaches, but I'm put off by the aspirin sauce. The sea scallops look good until I'm told they're served in a broth of malt liquor and mummified litchi nuts."
