The other day I went to the market down the street. I had to pick up potatoes, and usually I just get the yellow ones, not the red ones. But right next to the yellow ones was the most extraordinary potato I've seen, so I stuffed it into the bag quickly before someone else took it, and got a look from the guy running the stand regarding the only red potato in the bag of yellow ones.
Since Wednesday, the potato has been at the center of more conversations in this apartment than any potato in recent memory. So I thought I'd pass it along to you all and immortalize it on the internet before it gets made into a gratin or sautéed with green beans.
