I wanted to share some good news. After floundering around for a few months as a “retiree” and a failed Olympian I’ve got a new purpose in my life. I’m going to be a consultant in a new ground-breaking field. The New York Times, apparently after reading my March 15 entry in Irons in the Freezer has decided I will be there expert “go to” guy on ice cubes. It turns out they already have an expert on toast and now they want to add a consultant who can help their readers keep things “cool.” Besides my irregular column in their fishwrap you should also look for an upcoming coffee table book on ice cubes and toast. James Taylor has already agreed to do the forward.
