"Early on the first day of summer, I found myself sitting in the middle of an impossibly green pasture, resting. 'The longest day of the year' is what I would jot down in my notebook in bed late that night, followed by 'literally,' which was then struck out and replaced with 'figuratively.' What can I say? I was tired."
– Michael Pollan, The Omnivore's Dilemma
I'm always pleased when someone tips their hat to one of my pet hates. Thanks, Michael Pollan.
