I had breakfast this morning with Funny Girl. We went, as we always do, to the local diner, and we spent much of our two-hour breakfast, as we always do, discussing our problems with food and what we look like. Funny Girl orders, as she always does, a plate of fruit, one toasted English muffin, […]
