My 15 year old daughter Veronica recently asked me to drive her to the mall. I explained to her that malls are dens of iniquity, places where Satan mingles with his friends, materialism and consumerism, in their unholy trinity. I was laughing, of course, but the fact is that for me a trip to the mall is worse than a trip to the hospital. In both cases, I need to be strapped to a gurney and driven by necessity. I would prefer an emergency appendectomy to the line at the “food court,” which is where the fires of hell burn hottest.
And so, instead of approaching the mall’s parking garage of dreadful darkness, I suggested that we make a delicious bowl of Risotto al Cavolini di Bruxelles e Pancetta. She succumbed to the temptation.
Good always triumphs over evil, and hence, another delicious Primo, and another soul saved.
