So who’d you like to have breakfast with given a free hand?
Pancakes with Pavlov and ask him to bring his dogs?
Oatmeal with Oliver Stone so you can explain why everybody’s against you?
Eggs over easy with Ella Fitzgerald so you tell her how much you admired how she always made hitting the hard notes seem a snap?
This scenario came to mind Monday morning as a custom-painted mural stared at me during a two-hour meeting of the fine minds with a friend of mine.
I do believe an artist wishes everybody frequenting the Market Diner, think that they’re dreaming of breaking bread with actor Jimmy Dean at a booth with musician Buddy Holly over to the right while actress Marilyn Monroe eats a booth over to the left.
Unless that’s a young Penn State football coach Joe Paterno with James Dean?
I decided to ask. But my question went unanswered by these characters this January morning at the Regional Market in Syracuse, N.Y.
I think it’s a great mural.
Who do you see up on that wall? Who do you think is hanging out with their backs turned? I had a Denver Omelette. What would you order with Jimmy Dean?
