'I was hungry...I thought about a baked bean sandwich with mayo on anadama bread. I thought about corned beef hash with eggs. I thought about linguini with meatballs. (paragraph) I wondered why I never thought about fois gras, or roast guinea hen, or duck with olives. I wondered if everyone was like that or was it because I was plebian. Probably because I was plebian. Maybe if you were more cultured you thought about Dover sole when you were hungry." Robert B. Parker, Now And Then.
