There is one thing that almost everyone knows about me. I like to eat. And I eat a lot. Seriously. Even my students know this about me and like to point it out, because all of my examples in class are about food. Time to make up a sentence on the spur of the moment? Yes, it's about food. Again.
This is just one reason why I like Pip and Merry from the Lord of the Rings so much.
I have been reading a lot of Shakespeare recently. (Hopefully I get to teach a class this summer.) In A Midsummer Night's Dream there is a word for the meal that comes after dinner: aftersupper. Forget fourth meal and all it's Taco Bell associations. I'm having aftersupper.
