I don't want to say 'it's in my blood,' but, well, it kind of is. After all, I am the daughter who grew up spending Winter vacations being regaled with the over-the-top tales of my father's eating. We're talking about a young man who would drag his mother into the grinder shop next door whenever his family went to the corner scoop (ice cream) shop for dessert. Then there are the tales on my mother's side of the family, of his adulthood conquests. The warnings never to accompany him onto a cruise ship, or to be prepared to get that fateful knock at 3AM, "I'm hitting the buffet, you wanna go?" It's funny, really, because my father is otherwise fairly conservative within his life. He's worked the same job for 25 years, took care of his family (even gave up beer until I was out of the house), has a waistline most men his age would envy, and works within a strict budget of his own design.
