Today, in GO, I write about lunch
I love lunch. It's pretty much how I got the job I have today.
In a nutshell, circa 1984: A junior college newspaper editor devises a column to explain away the many long, lingering lunches he and his scribe-and-shooter buddies called "research."
Not much has changed, except my "Lunch on a Budget" concept now has a bigger budget.
(Which seems a good time to say to the lady who ran the college newspaper: Thank you, Dr. Stephens, for giving me the freedom to learn my trade.)
I've worked swing shift, graveyard and 9 to 5. A sit-down meal between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. -- with a book or over great conversation -- perked up any job I've had.
Do you like lunch? Love it? What about it? Where do you go? What do you indulge in?
It may look like I'm out to lunch, but I'm listening ...
