Meatloaf Night at Endovtheline Manor

When is now?

I’m 96, he says.

When was the last time you had a T-bone steak?

I can’t remember.

Would you like to have one?

Oh, yes.

What would you like to have with it?

A Guinness and a pretty girl.

I do remember T-bone steak

salt pepper nothing fancy

fire on iron grill

marbled fat melting

drip splash sizzle

char it nice

let it rest

pink inside sucking up

succulent meat juices

medium rare

was the way I liked it

Must have been June 1999.
