Favorite Quote:
“It may be normal, darling; but I’d rather be natural.”

-Truman Capote (Breakfast at Tiffany’s)


Oh, to live in a world of
Formica tables,
Checkered floors
and, of course, milkshakes.
A place where everything
Toasted golden brown buns
Black patties (not gray)
With thin, crispy edges.
The feeling that my
tongue has met a
long lost friend.

Before you eat it,
Make sure you salt it
Only then can you
raise it to your lips
And sink your teeth in.

My dad worked as a carhop,
So I love them due to
Genetic predisposition.
