The Happiest Breakfast in the World is as Close as Your Nearest Costco

Wednesday, April 7th, 2010

When you’re in training for the rigorous straight-outta-British Columbia Justin Herman Plaza Zipline, well, you need to exercise and eat right.

And after your work out, what could more entertaining than noshing on this still-life tabletop tableau?

See? The gorgeous green Granny Ramsey Smith* apples** are the eyes. They’re from the Yakima Valley, all the way up there near the aforementioned B.C., Canada.

Does the fact that they are from a thousand li away upset you?   

Should that upset you?

*Call them “baking apples” and I’ll cut you. Super-crunchy Grannies like these are for eating, not baking.

**Leave us not discuss Costco’s bananas in the 415 area. They are consistently substandard, IMO.
