We’re building a house. This is how people in Hell are tortured, I think.
Over my stove (that I still need to pick out and buy so if you hear of any good deals…) will be a 12” by 14” tile I’m carving a saying in. (Actual some guy is doing it, to be completely honest. I don’t carve tile. I know; you probably thought I did.)
Here are some classics I’m thinking of using. Input welcome.
The poets have been mysteriously silent on the subject of cheese. – G.K. Chesterton
A nickel will get you on the subway, but garlic will get you a seat. –Old New York Proverb
I take a vitamin every day. It’s called steak. –Buck Weston
Food is an important part of a balanced diet. –Fran Lebowitz
I will not eat oysters. I want my food dead – not sick, not wounded – dead. – Woody Allen
You are what you eat. For example, if you eat garlic, you’re apt to be a hermit. – Franklin P. Jones
Studies find top 3 most stressful moments in people’s lives: death, divorce, and properly pronouncing “Worcestershire sauce.” –Tony Hsieh
The most remarkable thing about my mother is that for 30 years she served the family nothing but leftovers. The original meal has never been found. –Calvin Trillin
Remember, as far as anyone knows, we’re a nice normal family. –Homer Simpson
I’m thinking of going with the last one because I want a quote from Homer Simpson permanently in my home.
Life is a combination of magic and pasta.
All sorrows are less with bread.
Could also work.
