Again … I’m writing this post from my friend Pam’s apartment. in Providence , Rhode Island. The Big Little. It’s 3 am and I’m having breakfast. An omelet left over from yesterday, reheated in the microwave. OMG it’s fabulous.
Some of you may never had an omelet so great it was still scrumptious heated over the next day.
So … when I realized that … I realized that the LIFE of a person is like an omelet.
Really? Sure! First there is the rather “pure” individual who lives a life like a “simple” omelet. A simple omelet is a couple of eggs wisked with a little milk and gently heated in a frying pan. Then slid onto a plate and maybe seasoned with a little salt and pepper. Nourishing, but certainly not exciting.
A few people add a couple of more ingredients to their omelets, (to their lives.) Maybe they like a little chopped onions or parsley. It’s still pretty much like a 9-5 job. The world needs 9-5 people.
The omelets Pam and I make are like the lives we have led. Filled with all sorts of interesting stuff so that eating it is a rare experience. This morning’s omelet had eggs and milk of course. Plus! Chopped onions, chopped celery, sliced green olives, capers, spinach, prosciutto, and even a little bit of shredded cheese.
The strong flavors melded together into an experience. Fantastic! Even reheated the next day.
It’s “the next day” in Pam’s life and my life. And the memories remain alive like our omelet. Fantastic.
How is your omelet?
