“Life is a near-death experience, and our devious minds will do anything to make it interesting.”
-Jim Harrison in “A Really Big Lunch” in Secret Ingredients: The New Yorker Book of Food and Drink, edited by David Remnick

    Including framing “life” as a “near death experience”which is uninteresting?What a crock for this guy’s food and drink.Lots of folks find life intrinsically interesting and don’t force a morbid cast upon it.But to each his own;-)

    I do believe Harrison was making a joke.

    Oh sure.You can’t tell from that short quote.I bet next you’ll be saying that SOME people would rather have a creamy cup full of hot cocoa than have their breakfast or dinner.;-)

    I’ve only gotten off the couch for the last three hours to occasionally refill my mug of coffee, so I can’t judge.
