What is it about advice columns that is so entertaining? I’m loving Bon Appetit’s etiquette series by Alex Beggs. For example, a reader asked: “I don’t enjoy sports. [At the stadium] can I use food runs as a time killer?” To which Beggs answered: “Depends on where you’re sitting. Aisle? Go blow your entire paycheck at Hungry Howie’s. But if your beautiful butt is going to be in my face more than five times this game, you risk the silent steaming fury of a stranger who’ll never, ever confront you.”
If you want to laugh, here is comedian Ceara Jane O’Sullivan talking about how to make friends at work. Watch it, then we’ll triangulate and circle back?
This afternoon, I’m making these chicken parm meatballs for some friends who need some TLC; they’re simple, warming and restorative. Thought I’d share in case anyone else needs them this week. xo
