While I am not generally one for new year’s resolutions, I will say this: in 2009 I will make an effort to control my famously substantial appetite for French fries.
Let me make one thing clear, I’m not vowing to avoid fries altogether this year. I am just proposing to give up the baskets of deep-fried mediocrity I find myself frequently consuming.
Banished will be the soggy fast food fries, the sub-par pub fries and the rest of the previously frozen potato products that are endemic to our nation’s bars and restaurants. These are a black mark on the glorious fried potato and will henceforth be ignored. I promise.
This resolution will hereby be suspended when traveling outside of Connecticut and will be taken under review while attending sporting events and/or beaches and coastally-adjacent seafood shacks.
