After the fourteen year, two thousand plus restaurant marathon to eat at every restaurant in Zagat Los Angeles, The Monster needs a little R&R. So the next few weeks will feature The Monster European style! First stop, a layover in Philly. The Monster feels as if he hasn’t eaten in days (it’s been hours). USAir does not offer any complimentary snacks on board and the pay options are most depressing. So The Monster pushes old ladies and kids and someone in a wheelchair over to sprint to the nearest oasis offering nourishment (this only happens in his imagination).
And there it is. Le Petit Bistro in the Philadelphia airport. Like a siren it’s call beckons The Monster who impulsively points at food behind the glass counter as he feels his body eating itself. With barely any strength left he realizes how close this call is to his demise (this doesn’t happen either).
