I know, I know, I ask a lot of you. But today is National Delurking Day. No, delurking does not involve a fine-tooth comb, but if you've been quietly reading and want to let me know you're out there, somewhere, today's the day to do it! You don't have to tell me who you are or that you only read Trout Towers when things are slow at work. I know that. I feel the collective attention plummet every weekday at 5pm sharp, and I'm okay with that.
And if you want to keep lurking, I'm okay with that, too. Seriously. Thank you for reading. It kind of makes my day (Chris: "kind of? kind of?!?!").
Moving on. Spoiler alert! The new issue of The Sound has a brandy spandy new column by Tony Pasquale, called Soup to Nuts, which involves brilliant commentary and a recipe. We made the recipe in the Trout Towers test kitchen just last night and oh mercy me, it was the best. Copies hit news stands and coffee shop floors on the 15th.
I am sorry if you don't live on Cape Cod and can't get the Sound. We really should look into some kind of subscription thingy. Let's do this: If you send me $20, I'll send you a copy.
It seems the least I can do on delurking day.
So please be sweet, my chickadee
And when I write, just say to me
"It's delightful, it's delicious, it's delectable, it's delirious,
It's dilemma, it's de limit, it's deluxe, it's de-lovely"
Or whatever you want.
p.s. it's not that I'm so hip to this stuff. I read From the Frontlines first thing this morning and took her post as gospel. Which I'm sure it is.
p.p.s. some of my favorite lurkers have come and gone already. Dang! Give it up, people.
p.p.p.s. I am a huge hypocrite as have been lurking all day.
