DAVE THOMAS, MY MAN (R.I.P.)
Tuesday, Jan. 08, 2002 @ 8:58 am

Today I will certainly get the Number 2 Combo, catsup only, Biggie Size, with a Dr Pepper. I will pay my respects. For years and years, there has been a Wendy's restaurant very near to my home, wherever that home has been. A standby. A comfort. Fuel for a heart that aches after eating!

We had Joe Wenderoth here in Seattle for a reading from his book "Letters to Wendy’s" and while I think it's a good book, while it's darkly funny (always a winning combo), I have felt bad laughing at his book - felt like I was cheating Dave Thomas, who has so much of my afternoon money and curbs so many of my American cravings.

I will no longer laugh at Wenderoth's book. I will eat a Number 2 Combo today and take one moment of silence for the man in the commercials.
