I think I might just like Eggers for the Egg.

One of my favorite parts from AHWOSG:
"All such foods, those containing more than two or three ingredients mixed together indiscriminately, including all sandwiches except salami, are not chewed, but eschewed."
I'm currently rereading the book and seeing if it is indeed true that the older you get, the more Eggers sounds like a whiny and arrogant brat, and less like a young, brazen genius. So far it's not the "staggering genius" I remember it being back when I was 17, but it's still pretty darn good. I'll be 21 in ten days. I guess I can't be that old yet, if I still enjoy this book...
