Consider the Lobster

So I had a lot of time at work today to read the entirety of David Foster Wallace's article for Gourmet in the mid-2000s regarding lobster. Needless to say it was an incredible article and everyone should read it: for mindful eating, for curiosity, for David Foster Wallace's incredible prose. I love that he asks us questions that might make us uncomfortable but he does it in such a...self-conscious, fantastic, intelligent manner. This was a great, great, great article, so if you haven't read it give it a read!
