I am trying really, really hard to think of something good that has happened to me this past week. The fact that I have to try so hard is depressing. The only joy I’ve had recently was the pleasure of consuming a Starbucks Turkey Bacon and Egg White Sandwich. It’s $5.10, including tax. I consider that a decent deal.
Man, oh man. The things I would do for that sandwich! Turkey bacon is severely underrated, and egg whites make me feel like Bella Hadid. The combination of turkey bacon, egg whites, and cheddar cheese makes me feel like Guy Fieri when he takes a stop at Flavortown. Forget about Starbucks’ seasonal flavors—their breakfast sandwiches are worth every penny.
Perhaps it’s controversial to place the Yale Symphony Orchestra Halloween Show in the “Not” section. It’s only here for one specific reason—the show starts too late. A midnight call time is borderline egregious. After a long, long Halloweekend, waiting for the YSO show was the nail in the coffin (Halloween joke intended). I was sitting in the right-side section, craning my neck to look at the screen from a nearly impossible angle. I loved the show, don’t get me wrong, but I was so physically uncomfortable—both from fatigue and poor seating selection. My cowboy costume wasn’t doing me any favors either. If I were smarter, I would have traded in my boots for a pair of slippers.
Also, if the show starts at midnight on Halloween, isn’t that November 1? It would make more sense for the show to begin at midnight the night before in order to ring in the spookiest day of the year. But, whatever. I don’t even like Halloween.
