In The Wilder Life the author has a great theory about the lavish meals in Farmer Boy and how they relate the LAURA's childhood; like @noReally points out above she had a more hardscrabble history until they got together so of course she'd be mesmerized by his stories of white sugar and pancakes. So many pancakes!
LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS!

Story of my life <3
This is WONDERFUL. I just want to devour everything about this like a healthful and delicious salad, laughing the whole way.
Animal jewelry is always my favorite. I want eccentric mice jewelry!
@The Everpresent Wordsnatcher This is beautiful information visualization
Okay but are you really saying we're supposed to eat cake with a FORK?!? Dessert spoons or GTFO ;)

So good! I've been kicking myself for not getting an entry in by the deadline. Jim Behrle had my idea anyway, except mine was going to be an edible representation of all the videos of people reacting to the Red Wedding.
I really enjoy and appreciate this little bit of Father's Day content for "the rest of us". I usually guiltily feel like griping about the holiday is somehow an affront to people who loved and lost their dads and have a hard time with the day. But we absently fathered kids deserve a space too :)
I remember a couple of Gary Paulsen books hitting the "young boy on the cusp of adulthood abandoned by father" angle that seemed big in the 80s. I guess Hatchet shouldn't really count because that kid was abandoned by EVERYBODY...but Wiki just confirmed that he was on the way to visit divorced dad for the summer when his plane crashed. And, yup, Dear Mr. Henshaw hit it too: he learns "his parents will never re-marry, people will continue to steal his lunch even though he has made a alarm for his lunch box, and that he can never count on his father to be available when he is needed but, he does pay support checks".
