Oh my God, the Veal Orloff episode! I think of it every time I attend a dinner party of a certain friend who makes exactly enough servings for each guest. I always want to take 3 servings (they’re small) and I think of that episode and crack up!
I’m sorry about your health, David. I have chronic health issues, as well, and they can really be a mind-fuck. I’m also on a special diet (very, very special) and am a constant pain in the ass for well-meaning friends who want to feed me.
Your story about your Grandma and Grandpa made my heart burst and I now must go searching the archives to read the rest. xoxoxo
