Drama is very important in life: You have to come on with a bang. You never want to go out with a whimper. Everything can have drama if it's done right. Even a pancake.
That's my favorite quote from this Esquire "What I've Learned" with Julia Child. It ran back in 2000, when Child was 87, but I read it for the first time this morning - Cail sent it to me last night.
Between Dixon and me, my days (and, as a result, my food) are pretty drama-filled. It's nice to hear that Julia would approve.
