As Father’s Day approaches, you can remind Dad that there’s more to Father’s Day grilling than just cheeseburgers.
Seeing huge bins of watermelons sharing curb space with jack o’ lanterns is just one of the quirkier joys of our California calendar. Even as the days shorten and the nights draw in, there’s still a handful of balmy days to enjoy. Bask in the last days of summer with this refreshing Thai-inspired squid and melon salad.
Where I work, there are a small handful of men who occasionally begin their sentences with the phrase “In my village…”
“In my village, we have a festival.” “In my village, we would never treat an octopus in such a way.”
These men can get away with saying such things as easily as they can get away with calling women “baby” because they are Greek. The have the accent, they have an old world charm about them that clings like the smell of clove and stale cigarette smoke.
And I have always been a little bit jealous. If I were to ever pepper my sentences with the words “In my village…” People would most likely assume it was Greenwich Village. And I can just forget about using the word “baby.” Ever.
