a face i miss from college – that of the smiley-faced potato. he/she usually made a grand appearance at the wellesley tradition of midnight breakfast: a breakfast thrown by the college from 11 pm til 1 am on the night before finals begin, consecrated by the campus scream (a bloodcurdling, campus-wide united scream out of our dorm windows, supposedly to release stress from cramming). i always got a load of smiley-faced potatoes, amazing sausage links, excellent french toast, and some fruit (“for health”). the best part was reuniting with friends after a week plus of separation while studying and writing to be goofy and stuff face. and the coffee. the coffee ranked highly. i have since spotted the elusive smiley-faced potatoes in some grocery stores in the frozen food aisle, and have yet to go hunting in memphis. maybe this will be my weekend project…either way, i miss midnight breakfast, and might have to do this on a once-monthly basis. this month has been covered, as we ended up at CK’s coffee shop at 1:30 am after the CSN concert. why does breakfast taste that much better when it is dark outside? riddle me that.
