What a delicious life he must lead!!

The imminent arrival of my fortieth birthday has led me to some periods of deep introspection of late. On the whole, I'd have to say that I'm quite satisfied with my lot in life at this stage of the game.

But I must admit to feeling a few pangs of jealousy when I read this article on the CBC's website. For in that article, there is a reference to a book entitled, Pancake: A Global History.

The CBC describes the author, Ken Albala, as a food historian at the University of the Pacific whose tome is erudite and witty. How does one score such a fantastic gig as writing a book about the most perfect food ever invented? And more importantly, why didn't I think of that?
