Peanut Butter and Jelly


I took a good old-fashioned Peanut Butter and Jelly sandwich to work today. Sometimes a PB and J is a comforting thing in a world full of complexity and chaos. It takes you back to when you were a kid and things were simple then. Now you are all grown up and things are different. There are lots of advantages and bonuses to being an adult but there are days when we all yearn to return to easier times. The PB & J is the thing that does it for me. Of course you gotta grow up and eat something with substance and flavors a sign you are maturing and being a man or woman instead of boy or girl. Sometimes you can have that childhood favorite paired with a spicy dish like chili. You can do adult versions of your childhood favorite but sometimes the basics are what’s best. PB & J is a metaphor for life and something worth savoring.
