Do you love to eat out? Do you love to write Haiku poetry? Why not combine the two?!?!? Diana, inspired after visiting Sugano Japanese Restaurant in Lexington, decided to write a haiku about her experience there:
Hidden treasure found
Cool springtime, rice transcendent
I am transported

We hope you will haiku too! Here’s how:
1. Pick your favorite local restaurant
2. Write a haiku about it. The rules are that the whole poem must equal seventeen syllables. While there are several formats, I think that the simplest format for English speakers is the 5-7-5. Andrew from Lexington has already submitted a haiku that will surely be renowned for it’s exemplary use of the 5-7-5. Read on:

Have you seen the Gain laundry detergent commercial where the narrator uses the word “gooder”? If not, take a look:
It definitely caught my attention! Thoughts?
My great auntie Marge is the most proper person I know. She’s 89 years old and still fires off thank you notes like an M16. Her talents however, extend to an even more impressive act of courtesy: the “bread & butter” call.
The “bread & butter” call is made to your friends or acquaintances in advance of sending a thank you note. You may do this:
- After you have spent a pleasant afternoon or evening in someone’s company.
- After receiving a gift
- After being taken out for a meal
This is my grandmother spending a pleasant evening in someone’s company. I expect her “bread and butter” call came a day or so later in order to allow her hosts a proper recovery period from their most excellent party. So civilized!
I think the “bread & butter” can also be shared by email, or even a buttery text message. If you do butter the bread by either of these methods, you still have to send a written thank you. Auntie Marge would!
Want an impressive and simple cocktail? Pappy Van Winkle bourbon on the rocks. Pure bliss.
