Somebody once told me that variety is the spice of life. Ever since that conversation, I have traveled the world high, low, near and far. I have searched the depths of the Marianna Trench to the peak of Mount Everest. I have seen things that will make your toenails curl. But I have not yet found a spice named "variety," so I have instead been forced to settle for nutmeg to be the spice of life.
