Friday Frecipe!

A childhood (serves 1)

Total prep and cooking time: 23 years


1 video cassette of Staying Alive starring John Travolta, Cynthia Rhodes, and Finola Hughes
1 pale green baby blanket
1 straw hat
3,650 Ziploc bags with the yellow-and-blue-make-green seal
25,550 cans of Budweiser


Mix dry ingredients in a large bowl and slowly add in Budweiser until dough starts to pull away from the sides. Let rest for ~15 minutes under a crocheted tablecloth topped with burning paper girl (optional). Bake at 425 degrees F until the inside is tender.


  1. Okay, this SO does not disappoint! Is this a way for us to peek into more of Davin? Because that's just cool.

  2. Hi Michelle! You read that fast! I'm glad it doesn't disappoint you. It's meant to be personal and enigmatic, just as the entire blog is supposed to be. :)

  3. I happened to be in my Reader when it popped up! Glad I got to see it first. It is definitely personal and enigmatic. I'm still pondering what it all might mean. You've got my imagination going. It helps that I've read the Burning Girl story and I had a childhood filled with those same Ziploc bags. :)

  4. I still remember how exciting that Ziploc technology seemed then! Ah, childhood.

  5. Ziploc bags are still cool. And that's a lot of cheap domestic beer, Doctor.

    This is really cool. I like it a lot. I hope you use this in your next book. There are all sorts of possibilities and I wish I'd thought of it, damn it.

  6. I just did something like this in an interview, but it was not my idea. The person who sent over the questions asked me what my life would be like if I were to convert it to a recipe. Yeah, that was interesting. What I came up with is not nearly as cool as Davin's.

  7. Scott, you came up with this blog, so in a way you did think of it.

    Michelle, really??? Wow!

    1. I am, like, the most influential human being ever.

  8. See, I said I was excited and then I WAS LATE. (In my defense, Friday was a religious holiday. I could even get a note! :) )

    This? Is just so brilliant, Davin. Like, I can't believe you are just tossing it up here, because I can see it published in a lit mag so easily.

    What will Scott do next???

  9. I never mind if anyone is late or too busy to blog. No worries! I am a vessel for Scott. Whatever he thinks bounces off me and sticks to him, or something like that.
