The yachtsman had to have a little outpatient operation on his eye today. I was hoping to share with you a post-op photo of the damage (I was told he'd have a badass shiner), but in fact his eye is too scary for me to look at directly, let alone photograph and post on a bl*g that is ostensibly about reading, writing, and eating. So instead I offer this pre-op picture of the doctor's initials indicating which eye he was going to maim.
And because this bl*g is ostensibly about, among other things, eating, I will tell you that the patient requested breakfast for dinner when we got home, specifically pancakes and bacon. And I will also tell you the secret to very fluffy pancakes: Separate the eggs and beat the whites before folding them into the batter. I learned that in medical school.
