I was sitting in a cafe he other day reading a biography of George Washington I had found in a thrift store. I got to a part where Washington was lying under a lice ridden blanket to keep warm when I overheard a guy returning a bagel because his salmon had been mixed in with his cream cheese. It was his contention that the salmon should be separated. He said it tastes better that way.

There is really no point here. I like my salmon separated as well. And i am not particularly rugged. I realize it was just context, but it was funny to me. I wonder if Washington was a pain in the ass at the deli counter as well. The book didn’t say.
