Somewhere, buried deep within the human genome, there exists a profound principle. And, if I were to put it into words, it would be something like…
‘Thou shall enjoy the best that which thou cares for the least’!
All my life, I’ve suffered the most for goals that I held in highest esteem. Jobs, money and women all were a total slog. They were either found to be lame, upon attaining or a thing that I labored so hard for, I would find myself thinking… ‘What the fuck was I doing’…..
So, it was that another principle cast it’s light on my otherwise dull life when I discovered…
‘You’ll find the greatest happiness by doing stuff you just don’t give a rat’s ass about.’
So, it was on a cloudy day in April, that I threw together an egg salad mix in record time and with ingredients that I only gave a passing glance to. Measured amounts? Nah, what was the point? I mean if there was such a thing as a nihilistic creation, this was that recipe.
But, lo and behold, I had thrown recklessly together the Mt. Olympian of all comfort foods! Just a half sandwich put me far away on distant shores! But, like a Shakespearean play, it was both comic and yet tragic… In that I could never again duplicate such a true masterpiece.
OK. so here’s the way I make mine….
4 eggs, boiled and peeled
2 tbsp mayo
2 tbsp onion, celery minced
1 tsp yellow mustard
1/4 tsp white vinegar
Mix and place in the fridge for about an hour! Enjoy!
