    @ Gerry: Definitely. I remember the first time I went into a diner in New York and asked for a toasted bagel and was confused when the waitress immediately responded, "Widdashmear?"

    By the way, I have finally figured out my policy on whether or not to include an initial blank line in my comments. When I`m chatting with you, Gerry, I`ll include it in deference to your aesthetic sensibilities; otherwise, I`ll omit it for efficiency`s sake.

    You can`t imagine the anxiety this has caused me. =@.@= LOL

    Oh man, NY style bagels are noice, I can pack `em in my kids` lunches without them breaking a tooth..but when it comes to a freshly toasted bagel, I gotta say that a Montreal style bagel is superior.

    Now I`m hungry! I grew up eating bagels like this, and you can`t get them anywhere but the NYC area like that. I don`t know what it is.

    @Sminky: Unfortunately, I suspect you haven`t had a good bagel just yet. In fact, the bagels you`ve had up to now may have been frozen at one point (blecch).

    Here are the hallmarks of a good bagel: The outside has a crust that crackles when you bite into it, with little air bubbles formed when it was cooked in the salt water and then, still wet, thrown into the oven. The inside should be chewy, have a wonderful yeasty aroma, and warm. A good bagel is delicious plain, and absolute heaven when toasted.

    For my lunch today, I found a local place that makes good bagels (not Brooklyn good, but certainly passable). I had one salt bagel, one egg bagel, both toasted and with shmears of lox cream cheese. Yes! =^.^=

    "I was born in the era of sepia."
    I remember the first time I saw a Pac-Man machine.
    It was almost completely orange that day...
