I would like to give a sarcastic thank you to Will, my boss of this Culture Magazine Internship, for my recent debt. Since I began my internship with Culture, I have been sampling many different cheeses on numerous occasions. So far, I have tasted fine cheese at two events with Culture, Cochon 555 and California’s Artisan Cheese Festival, and other samplings have occurred during my personal explorations.
I have recently noticed myself loitering around cheese sections of supermarkets for longer periods of time than usual. I have also noticed my pockets feel a little lighter… and my fridge is filling up with artisan cheeses and interesting accompaniments (latest purchase: Ficoco, a fig and cocoa jam).
It turns out that I have been spending up to $20 a week on cheese! This is not good for my bank account or my waistline. I better cut back on this absurd expenditure before I become obese and poor… or perhaps you could give me free samples whilst I work, Will? Just an idea…
