Celebrating Peter
The Melt

White Castle Wackiness



Jeremy, our younger son and father of our two grandsons, successfully completed his eat-an-apple-a-day-for-a-1000-days marathon last October.   Never content to be challenge-free, he decided to eat in the 100 largest restaurant/fast-food chains in the U.S. in1000 days.  No one agreed to join him, but a friend’s wife did pledge not to eat in any of those restaurants for 1000 days.

His parents rolled their eyes with that “here we go again” look.  At least apples are healthy.

On the Saturday of our NYC birthday celebration for Peter, Jeremy was in the living room of our Air bnb apartment when I woke up. He couldn’t wait to tell me that he had discovered a restaurant on his list that was a three-minute walk away. 

That’s why I found myself, face unwashed, teeth unbrushed, in a White Castle restaurant at 7:00 a.m.  The restaurant had been open all night.  No one was there but us and the cook/order-taker.  Jeremy had a bacon, egg and cheese slider with a side of hash browns and a cherry coke.  Needless to say, I had nothing.  I think the total bill was $4.79.

What we do for our children!
