Went to Father's Day brunch buffet at the incomparable Webers Inn here in Ann Arbor this morning. Ruby the Carnivore and I indulged in an absolute Meat Bonanza—sausage (patties, of course), ham from the carving station, and she enjoyed some steak tips and even fried chicken—but there was NO BACON! I quickly rallied and switched from protein to carbs and started downing those miniature Belgian waffles and pastries to fill the void. Rachel valiantly stayed within the boundaries of normal human consumption, but I made a pig of myself—what the hell, it's my day, right? That, and I reminded myself of the fact that I'm armed with the first season of "The Shield" plus "Casino Royale" on DVD to put in some extra treadmill time.
It was all delicious and a great start to the day, but alas, there is NOTHING more enjoyable than a good slice of bacon.
