This is what remains of the overgrown greenhouse at Grossinger’s Catskill Resort Hotel, once the most notable of the Borscht Belt resorts, which shut its doors over 30 years ago.  In the summers, there were thriving flower gardens throughout the carefully landscaped grounds; in winters, a small botanic garden in here.  Located right near the 18-hole golf course - the only part of the resort still functioning (under new ownership), and on the hill where artificial snow was used for the first time for skiing, the greenhouse is still performing admirably - although now it’s weeds and climbing vines rather than flowers and exotic trees growing inside.

Calm down, Satan.

I’m setting up breakfast, and there’s a guest down here early because, I come to find out, his own friends hate him, too. He’s trying to make small talk and he’s terrible at small talk. 

Anyway. I get to the butter/cream cheese setup, which looks pretty much like this:

Normal, right? 

This guy looks at it and asks: “So do you put the regular stuff in the back and the healthy stuff in the front so people feel guilty when they reach over the healthy ones?”

“…no.”

“Oh. Well, I would.”

I’m sure you would, Dr. Baron von Evilsatan. 

I’m sure you would.
