For Esme, no cinnamon toast

"Do you know Ohio?" she asked.
I said I'd been through it on the train a few times but that I didn't really know it. I offered her a piece of cinnamon toast.
"No, thank you," she said. "I eat like a bird, actually."
--"For Esme, With Love and Squalor," J.D. Salinger
Cool story. But who in their right mind could turn down a piece of cinnamon toast?! Not Martha Stewart -- it's one of her favorite things to eat for breakfast. Cannot believe it's been over a year since I witnessed her greatness in person.
