always love to read those "man-on-the-street" columns in my local
newspaper. It seems that frivolous questions rather than weighty ones
inspire far livelier and intriguing responses. In the same spirit, I
collar friends, relatives, and total strangers to ask them inconsequential
questions on culinary matters.
Q: What was your favorite kind of Halloween candy when you were a kid?
Christopher: I liked those little chocolate bars. Especially Milky Ways. I liked O'Henry's because they're weird. I always liked Necco wafers, except the black ones. My dentist always gave out toothbrushes at Halloween. How lame is that? There was this lady on our block who gave out dollar bills. She was great.
