I never get skin on custard. It's completely avoidable. If you are purchasing custard already made, you should never, ever patronize an establishment that cannot make skinless custard. If you are making the custard yourself -- or a relative is -- learn the skin-avoidance tactics that are readily accessible thru recipe books or the internet. personally, i am against placing a pillow over someones face while they sleep. it's somewhat harsh. but the writer of the letter to the roommate who is an omnivore should be euthanized for the sake of society at large. i think i might reply thus: dear emily - i have tolerated your haughty, self-righteous attitude for months without comment. if you wish to terminate our relationship as roommates, feel completely free to do so. otherwise i would not be surprised if you should turn up in a dumpster in small pieces.
