The biscuits at the Silver Skillet are the best in Atlanta. They are flaky and perfect and light as a feather. They are, in fact, among my favorite things to eat.
While I was there today, then, I decided to ask for the recipe. I thought i would use my site’s cache to earn credibility. I approached the counterman cautiously.
“Sir,” I said, “hi, my name’s Arnold Freedenblocker and I run a website called Chocolate and Zucchini. I was wondering if I could have the recipe for your biscuits?”
He gave me a look like I just asked him to take his pants off. In fact, he did take his pants off.
“I’d rather take my pants off then give away our recipe!” he said, exposing his polka-dotted boxers to the biscuit-eating public.
“Oh,” I replied.
“Our biscuits are what we are known for,” he explained, pulling his pants back up. “Can’t give that away, sorry.”
Curses! Oh well, it won’t end there. Where there’s a will, there’s a way…
