I wish I had said it

I’ve been on a marathon 3 day viewing of the first four seasons of “How I Met Your Mother”. I gotta say, this is much more enjoyable than watching all 3 seasons of “Two Guys, a Girl and a Pizza Place”.

And I wonder why I’m getting fat. Moving swiftly on.

In the third season, Marshall (played by Jason Segel) leads the charge to rediscover the “best hamburger in New York”. After being presented with a series of Burgers and still not being convinced, he was asked what was so special about his particular Holy Grail Burger. His response was pure poetry”

“Just a Burger? Just a burger. Robin, it’s so much more than “just a burger”. I mean…that first bite—oh what heaven that first bite is! The bun like a sesame freckled breast of an angel resting gently on the ketchup and mustard below—flavors mingling in a seductive pas-de-deux And then…a pickle…the most playful little pickle! Then a slice of tomato, a leaf of lettuce and a…a patty of ground beef so exquisite; swirling in your mouth breaking apart and combining again in a fugue of sweets and savor so delightful. This is no mere sandwich of grilled meat and toasted bread, Robin: this is God…speaking to us in food.

As Barney would put it: “Legen – I hope you don’t have lactose intolerance – Dary”
