"Then we can't possibly speak about it now," said Sir Lulworth; "no one could possibly talk seriously, during a borsch. A beautifully constructed borsch, such as you are going to experience presently, ought not only to banish conversation but almost to annihilate thought. Later on, when we arrive at the second stage of olives, I shall be quite ready to discuss that new book on Borrow, or, if you prefer it, the present situation in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg. But I aboslutely decline to talk anything approaching business till we have finished with the bird." Saki, The Blind Spot
Mark Walters: You can make a large pot and eat it day after day without getting tired of it.
