25 Meals (with meaning)

1. IV Lounge 10th Anniversary Cake courtesy of Dani Couture (who tagged me in this meme, and probably created it, such wonders that poets are).
2. May 23, 1979–First birthday cake, which I did not consume but only looked at, owing to parents’ theory that babies can’t eat cake (they ate it).
3. Summer 1982–First self-made meal: Two peanut-butter sandwiches, d carried into the yard on cookie sheet (second sandwich was for brother).
4. Similar time as #3–English-muffin mini-pizzas with *ham* on them, offered at a childhood friend’s home; small Rebecca’s first inkling that the world was indeed vaster and more curious than she could ever have dreamt.

6. Lunch hour, 1989-1992–Swamp food–trail mix adaptation that my Kim, Mary, Jen and I worked hard on. I think it contained pretty much anything that came in small discrete units–nuts, dried fruit, candy, corn chips, breakfast cereal, popcorn, pretzels.

17. 1997-2001, post-dancing–Madonna pizza (cheese only), eaten while walking down the street.
18. 1997-2001, as often as possible–shish taouk, extra turnips, eaten while walking down the street.
