Go long, then go home

Or go to work, as I did this morning after an hour and 45 minutes romping around on the twisty trails from la casa de Carrara in Hudson. I don't mind the shortened Sunday shift at the store, although it did cause me to miss out on Christy Mae's bountiful brunch and that, my friends, is reason to lament. If you've ever been fortunate enough to sample the blueberry waffles made from scratch, turkey bacon seared to perfection and homefries saturated with enough seasoning to make Emeril jealous, then I'm sure you feel my stomach's pain. Luckily for me, the crafty cook of the Carrara kitchen didn't let me leave without a few slices of chocolate chip banana bread, which was enough to temporarily stop the flow of tears and hold me over just long enough so I could get to work on time.

So Christy Mae, I thank you not only for your gratuitous generosity, but also for not hammering the rest of us sorry bastards into the ground this morning. Your kindness on both fronts was greatly appreciated and did not go unnoticed.

How the heck does Christy stay as thin as a reed when she cooks like that!
