And not only a salade composée but a salad calm enough to settle nerves of most kinds. The garlic-rubbed toasted baguette, soft eggs and vinegary-olive oily dressing dripped over watercress and bibb lettuce can make it seem unimportant. A day running around New York, throw in some Times Square (aaaaaaaaaaaaah!), salt it with some Toys R Us (waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!) top it off with some FAO Schwarz (naaaaaaaaaaaah!) and finish it with a ride on Jane's Carousel (wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeh!)...phew.
