Grandpa Plate #1LinerWeds

Well, the Days Of Forced Consumption are over for another year, and I hope everybody bought stock in antacids. I did well: I tend to browse, although too many good desserts are my caloric downfall.

Some people load up on one or two things, and then founder when they try to do a second plate. Amateurs.

I learned from my grandpa. When he got to where he couldn’t do a buffet line because he couldn’t safely balance himself and a plate, we would sit him down and ask the question he loved to hear, “What can I get you?”

His answer became the basis for The Grandpa Plate which I fill for myself now:

I’ll have a little bit of everything.

I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

      I hear you on wanting to pick your own foods at a buffet. I’m the same way. There are foods I like, but don’t want to waste the calories on them when there’s a food I LOVE further down the line. 😀
