My Dear Mrs. P, if you were like the Countess, Mr. P's mood would be the one you told him to be in...You must become "She who must be obeyed"...The Countess is always obeyed, and I mean now!

Mrs. Peperium

Ah, but if I were like the Countess I would have a cook. Who has ever heard of a Countess without a cook?

Mr. Peperium

The chicken, if anyone is interested, is doing fine. I'm experimenting with a lower heat, one that will seep through the thick coating of tandoori sauce, cooking the chicken without scorching the outside. Such pyrotechnics are reserved for dishes like the ribs we had last night, where the BBQ sauce gets carmelized in a semi-crispy, semi-maleable sweet tanginess that elevates the soul in a kind of Baptist Chapel Sunday-go-to-meetin' Praise the Lord and Pass the Okra kind of way.

But I digress.

As for obeying and being obeyed, I am put in mind of Black Adder III, the series that takes place in England during the French Revolution. I'm not going to go into the dialogue for the sake of the pure, unspotted nature of this blog. Let me just say it involves Rowan Atkinson running through the list of possible Continental brides for the Prince of Wales (Hugh Laurie) and their dominant bedroom personas.

But I hear my tandoori calling, It smells like a Bombay chophouse outside.

Mrs. Peperium

The mood, she shifts, no?

I say, I've smelled houses in Bombay many a time, but they were'nt chop houses, what? Tiffinwalla...

Mrs. P, I have many pictures from the Oyster Bar. If anyone is interested in seeing any of them, contact me.

I especially like the one of you dancing on the bar in those cut-offs with the Confederate flag on the back.

Mrs. Peperium

Now the mood really has shifted. I think the photo of Mr. Cusack wrapped in the Papal flag is of far more interest to people.
