You know you've been watching too much 'Dead Like Me' when...

As I passed the cookbook section at my store today, an elderly man caught my eye. He asked if we had any books that were specifically geared toward cooking for one. Even more specifically, to taking existing recipes and reworking the portions and measurements for a single cook/diner. He was very chatty and, I think, a little lonely, so I swallowed my rising frustration (he kept repeating himself as if that would make a book that didn't exist magically appear) and did my best.

I found a couple of books that were remotely related to what he was seeking. He smiled. "Thank you so much, dear." And he patted me on the back.

My first thought? Dude - did he just pop my soul? Of course I called Don. Y'know... just in case I was about to be crushed by a falling stack of 'Weird New Jersey."

Yeah, but did he have a drug addiction...or was he lately hit by a flaming toilet seat?
Any Gremlins lurking?

Actually, I should have asked if he'd ever toyed with the idea of trepanation... but then he was neither young, British nor cute.

No gravelings that I could see. Wait - lots of screaming kids. Same thing.
