Boiled Chicken Breasts
-Oksu, Seongdong, Seoul, Republic of Korea-
In a resounding and resolute end to the relentless bacchanalia that was my summer vacation, I place myself on yet another crash diet. Just the sight of these chicken breasts, which look this way because they came from a whole bird, is enough to kill my appetite for days to come.
With the start of the fall semester a couple weeks ago, I dusted off my work clothes – trousers and dress shirts that I haven’t worn since the end of the spring semester – only to realize with horror that everything was stretching at the seams. Today, one of my students had the gall to comment, with an undisguised snicker, that I appeared to have enjoyed myself during the break. What a jerk (me, not the student).
