PALM LATITUDES

Verbatim

July 31, 1994

Excerpts from a Krups press release:

Imagine that your true love has slaved over a new recipe which has, nonetheless, failed miserably to please you palate. Should you bite your tongue and keep chewing? According to the survey, the "Top 10" acceptable reactions include:

1. Discuss how the food was prepared and figure out what went wrong.

2. Request that the recipe is never made again. . .

5. Make myself a sandwich.

6. Pretend it's good and at most of it. . .

9. Ask for ketchup.

10. Make believe I'm too sick to eat.

Actually, if you bite your tongue and keep chewing, that should pretty much do it.
