Mission (mostly) imPossible
Play the theme music… Handed to me on a bar napkin
…”Falco, should you chose to accept it, your mission is to get a post on Craig’s List- Best Of. You cannot employ direct request from social media or friends to nominate you into social media fame. This message will forever stick itself to the bottom of a pint glass in 3,2,1”…
Accepting my mission, I set off, researching 100’s of other Best Of posts, I came up with the following.
Wanted- Your Recipe
Hi, Last week while mowing my lawn, I found an upside down paper plate in it. I assume this plate blew in the day before, from your recycling bin that was emptied by our rage-filled garbage man (you know what I’m talking about). Normally, I would just mow over this trash and let the lawn eat it but something inside me said, “Spare the Plate, spare the plate” so, I picked the plate up and noticed that it still had some food stuck to it. For reasons I can only understand now, I was compelled to smell the hard, leftover food residue on your discarded party plate. Then, without remorse, I licked that plate and Holy Crap did that baked bean smear taste Awesome! Out of some form of dignity and/or shame I was not going to tell anyone about this. However, your beans have followed me through my dreams and consumed my thoughts. I can no longer live without your recipe! If this was your plate please e-mail me your recipe and or leave it in the replies for everyone, I can only hope that this outreach to the universe, will end the torment of my bean-less soul. Thanks
I’m not telling you what to do but you know what needs to happen…
