JULY 10, 2010. TOMORROW IS JULY 11.
FIVE CORNERS UPDATE
Crazy Friday at the Essex Junction Five Corners.
All sorts of tourists idling away, probably wondering when the gosh darn light was going to change.
I knew better. After I crept up to my waiting place in line, I placed the beast in park, got out and strolled over to the brand new Essex Junction Farmer's Market.
What a great time I had. First, I grabbed a quick cold one from Murray's Tavern, just to cool off a bit. Then, feeling famished, I sampled veggies and sweets from the vendors. Finally, I stopped into the Brownell Library and read, cover to cover, the latest (maybe it's not his latest, 2009) from Michael Pollan, entitled 'Food Rules', which was hilarious and startling all at once. Here's three gems from the book:
" Don't eat breakfast cereals that change the color of the milk."
" Eat animals that have themselves eaten well."
" It's not food if it's called by the same name in every language. (Think Big Mac, Cheetos, or Pringles.)
Anyway, when I arrived back at the Five Corners, I sensed that my lane was up next. I slipped into my vehicle, the light turned green, and I was on my way. A well spent couple of hours. Ahhh.
