Longing for Boulangeries

Setting: In the Flourish Bakery on Bryn Mawr

Bakery Clerk: Hi, can I help you?

Luis: Hi, how fresh are those baguettes?

BK: They're fresh.

LMGM: Um, OK. I'll take one. And one of the cupcakes with green frosting.

BK: That'll be $3.00

LMGM: Really?! Jeez. By the way, do you guys bake an afternoon batch?

BK: Huh?

LMGM: Do you bake bread more than once a day? In the afternoon, so that you have fresh bread for dinner?

BK: We bake our bread fresh everyday.

LMGM: *silence*

BK: Actually, we bake it the night before, so that it's fresh every morning.

LMGM: *sigh*

Jesus God. There has GOT to be a good French bakery in Chicago, right? RIGHT??!!!!

I !@#$ing hope so. Mind you, my ass is probably thanking me for the paucity of good bread here. Good French bread is KRYPTONITE, man.

Addicted, eh? I doubt you'll found anything as good in Chicago.

I mean, each one of my 5 boulangeries in the 5 minutes radius bakes new baguettes at least every 3 hours!

And remember les Traditions? Le Pain Complet? Miaaammm!!!

Gotta get back soon. Otherwise, you risk total palate atrophy!
