“Every so often a fan will come up to me and ask ‘Hey man, why spinach? Why not a protein shake?’ -- or whatever it is the kids are using these days -- and then I sort of spiral into this whole existential crisis. I mean, I’m a sailor and all I eat are vegetables? What kind of logic is that? You can’t build this kind of muscle without protein. Also - has anyone ever heard of scurvy? Talk about being careless. Throw me a stinkin’ orange every now and then. Add a nice steak while you’re at it. And don’t even get me started on this pipe-” He removes the pipe from his mouth, briefly. “This stupid thing goes everywhere with me, even when I’m not smoking anything. I may be giving your kids incentive to eat their greens, but let’s see how charming you’ll find it when they start spending their entire allowance on pipe tobacco. That stuff ain’t cheap.” He glances anxiously at your pen and notepad. “Say… this is all off the record, right?” [Kara Young]
