Ever noticed how some people are more interesting than others? Their mannerism, way of speaking, and even looks, set them apart. Let me give you an example. Gabriel Byrne and Pierce Brosnan. Both actors, both Irish, both dark and handsome. Yet one is definitely more interesting. Byrne. Right? C’mon, he has the reputation of being the “brooding” kind! That makes him interesting.
More so than Brosnan. And this coming from a gal who had a crush on Remington Steele, too. Of course, Byrne is not as interesting as either Sean Connery or Colin Ferrell, both also dark and handsome Irish (See Update) actors. But it wouldn’t be fair to compare him to them. One is a legend, the other much too hip and young to warrant a fair comparison.
Jennifer Aniston vs. Angelina Jolie. Jolie.
Roger Federer vs. Raphael Nadal. Nadal. (Still watching the Australian Open.)
Paula Deen vs. Ina Garten. Deen. (Excepting her use of a certain word that caused her demise, and rightly so.)
Oprah Winfrey vs Gayle King. Winfrey.
Okay, the last one is unfair. I’m pretty sure Gayle King is plenty interesting. We just haven’t been exposed to her as much. Besides, is there any woman who can be more interesting than Oprah Winfrey? Maybe Malala Yousafzai, and she is even just a kid.
The point I’m trying to make is that some people just have what it takes while others don’t. To be interesting. I want to be like them.
Not so much in the real world as in the blogosphere. I’m not saying the blogosphere can’t be real, but that’s another debate for another day. Anyway, that’s the kind of reputation I want to have. I want people to say,”Now that’s an interesting blog,” about my blog.
That’s why I’m making this Scandalous Sandwich. All of a sudden, things have just gotten more interesting around here. Who wouldn’t be interested in a Scandalous Sandwich? Scandalous Sandwich is so darn interesting.
Why scandalous? Well, have you ever had a burger sandwich with spicy kimchi and a sunny-side-up? Oh, you’ve been to Chicago’s BopNGrill and had their kimchi burger?
Well, this is different. This is more scandalous. This one is served on a pretzel bun, crunchified (borrowing Bobby Flay’s term) with fried onions, and doused with chipotle mayonnaise. And then you can serve it with a Dos Equis on the side. If you don’t think that’s so interesting it’s scandalous, you’re asking for too much. And there’s nothing more I can say to you except to bid you my new signature adieu,”Stay hungry, my friends.”
