Stick 'em in a stew
Samwise Gamgee. A true friend. Frodo couldn't have done it without him. Everyone should have and be a friend like Sam. But, this post isn't about Sam. And it's not about LOTR, although I am a big fan. It certainly isn't about creepy/pathetic Gollum. And it's not about friends. Although we all need friends. No. This post is about potatoes. Po.Ta.Toes.
I don't know why I love potatoes so much. Maybe because of their versatility. There is so much you can do with a po.ta.to. Mash them, french fry them, make pancakes ouf of them, hash brown them - - - need I go on? Maybe I love them because they are a comfort food, and I am in constant need of comfort. If they could make a blanket out of potatoes, I would have one. I would hold it against my cheek and sigh. I would sleep with it. But, instead, I eat Po.Ta.Toes.
And I am comforted.
Aaaaah. If only life were that simple.
