As a biker who rides about 150 miles a week from April to October, I worry about what I put in my body. I fret about fat content of food. I avoid alcohol. I hold my breath when I'm behind a soot-producing diesel truck. If I break down and have a plate of disco fries, I can feel it the next morning. My average time slips. My legs cramp. My head hurts.
DUCK LADY & SMILING DUCK SALADS
I was walking by The Delta Grill on Ninth Avenue and spotted its "Duck Lady Salad." Unfortunately, there are no other hits for it on Google. See the article on the New Orleans "Duck Lady" in GAMBIT (the same publication that recently published a letter of mine):
The Delta Grill's Menu at Foodservice.com - A Business to Business ...
... Salads. Duck Lady Salad, 9, Blackened Chicken Salad, 8. Pepper-crusted duck breast
served on fresh greens with a raspberry sauce. With a cucumber dressing. ...

The Green Papaya 2004 Thai Kitchen, 185 Sullivan Street (between Bleecker & Hudson), has:
Smiling Duck Salad 14.50
Double crisped five-spice duckling, pineapple, macintosh tossed with a spicy tamarind dressing on a bed of green.
There were no hits for "Smiling Duck Salad" on Google, and not even "Smiling Duck" + "Thai" turned up anything.
The Disco (Duck) Fries worked out, but the Duck Salads are quackers. If they catch on, though, you heard them here first.
OT: DAVID SHULMAN (OR, FREE T-SHIRTS ARE SIMPLY NOT ENOUGH)
Two weeks ago, (longtime ADS-member) David Shulman heard a new food term and he wanted to know if I'd heard of it. It was in a crossword puzzle. "SMORES." Had I heard of it?
Today, the NYPL is closed, but he said he wanted to meet me at NYU. I had to be there sharp. There was important business to discuss. No, uh, sleeping for me after a hard work week.
What was there to discuss? For starters, did I have a check for the typist of his poems? OK, I'd give him that.
Then, I had to sign something so he could remain in a single room at his senior center. What am I signing, Dave? (He can't get along with the roommates they give him. He needs space for his books.) What am I signing? (He needs me to pay for the his extra space.) How much is it? (850.) 850? 850 dollars? 850 dollars a month? Ten thousands dollars a year?? (Yes.) Good lord! I make $33 an hour, with no benefits at all, before taxes. You know how many hours of work that is? (But you go on all these trips.)
Yes. Because my mother and father had long illnesses during their too-short lives, and they're dead.
