"in her old age Isak Dinesen only ate oysters and drank champagne"

Sometimes I could work two, three days and not sleep and I didn’t pay any attention to food, because… a can of sardines and a cup of tea and a piece of stale bread seemed awfully good to me. You know, I don’t care about food and my diet has very little variety. I read once that in her old age Isak Dinesen only ate oysters and drank champagne, and I thought what an intelligent solution to ridding oneself of meaningless decision-making.
