Folk School: Day 2

Folk School morning walk was rained out. Morning song was led by the boss, who gave a history of the place. Then big hippie country breakfast and down to chocolate class.

We made double chocolate chunk cookies and toffee cookies. Lunch was broiled shrimp garden salad in a chili oil vinaigrette. I skip dessert for homemade whole wheat bread with a shmear of government peanut butter, a sense memory that took me back to boarding school.

I go back to class and make coconut macaroons. I had half of a double chocolate cookie, which kept a chocolate aftertaste in my mouth until dinner. Then I go grocery shopping with the teacher - always the teacher's pet - for the ingredients for my experiments: fried pie, chocolate mousse and chocolate shortbread.

Then I showed a beginning banjo student how to practice major scales by ear. I love it when life imitates an antidepressant commercial.

I'm swooning when you say "chocolate mousse".

basilwhite: Chocolate mousse is my banjo.

I just don't belong with decent people.

I'm the only guy in my cooking class. The country boys upstairs learning banjo asked me why a man would learn how to cook.

I told them even a lot of good church-going women will trade a blowjob for fried chicken. Enjoy banjo class! How does that banjo taste?

Yeah, if they were learning guitar they might get somewhere with that whole instrument thing but FOOD....much faster return, O my Brother.

This is why I like smart boys...
