Wish it, want it, EAT IT.
February 22, 2013 - Brian Collins
I have always been a cynic when it comes to self-help books.
I don't know why, but I think a lot of it has to do with the fact that I'm somewhat of a realist, as well as a writer (so I know that wishing, dreaming or wanting to get a book or screenplay picked up by a major publisher or studio just doesn't cut it).
Well, I have had an epiphany. A 4,000 calorie epiphany.
A while ago, in light of the book Wish It, Dream It, Do It : Turn the Life You're Living Into the Life You Want by Leslie Levine, Family Guy made a spoof entitled Wish It, Want It, Do It.
I thought it was absolutely hilarious.
The concept is that if you want something badly enough, you'll get it.
Again, I thought it was absolutely hilarious.
Well, the lack of a decent Mexican restaurant in Warren was really getting to me as well as Brian Ferry and Jake Perryman.
Once upon a time, I had been under the impression that Taco Hut in Jamestown delivered. I don't know if I was just crazy or if they just stopped delivering, but either way, Brian Ferry and I were convinced that we could get them to deliver to the NY/PA border if we ordered enough...so one day we tried and were subsequently denied our dying wish.
It was heartbreaking. HEARTBREAKING I tell you.
Well, I began wishing that we could have Mexican.
It became an obsession. Seriously.
Every couple of days, Ferry and I would lament about the taco situation in Warren to the point where I even bought a gas station taco for us from Quik Fill (which was surprisingly satisfactory, but I wouldn't advise trying it if you have a weak stomach).
Well, after that experience, I really wanted Mexican...
One day, to my extreme pleasure, Diana Paddock walked into the newsroom and proposed that in lieu of soup day, we have a Taco Day.
Well, I am now a strong believer in wish it, want it, do it...when it comes to wanting foods.
Here are my suggested steps:
Our Taco Day Food Spread... Pretty awesome, eh?
