Excuse me, Mr. Critic, for interrupting you with your shirt tucked in and an iceberg leaf tangled in the tines of your fork like a fly in a web. I've noticed your taste for the crisp and the flavorless from the first moment I saw the red pen in your pocket and heard what you said about me to your gossipping bartender friends.
I don't like lettuce very much. It doesn't make me feel anything. What is your fascination with things that take more energy to digest than they possibly could impart, Mr. Critic? I don't get it. What's your secret?
