I’ve always been the best friend runner-up, as in, “You’ll be my best friend if he dies.” So I work extra hard to be pleasant in the hope that someday, when no one is looking, I’ll catch the best friend bouquet.

Jensen's recipe calls for fried bacon, sugar, vinegar, eggs, green onions and fresh leaf lettuce, which grows in his small indoor garden. ”We had wilted lettuce for Christmas," said Jensen, who lives in Springfield, Ill.  The lettuce grows with the help of a Styrofoam base that floats in water that's fortified with three different kinds of liquid nutrients and circulated by an air bubbler. ...
