Today is Commencement! I have finally graduated with a degree! I now hold a Bachelor of Music in Jazz Studies from Brigham Young University.
I opted not to walk so I don’t have a photo of me in a cap and gown but you can imagine what I would look like a blue tent! Now that doesn’t mean I didn’t celebrate—which I did in my own way.
While 6000+ graduates, friends and family were at Commencement in the Marriott Center, I went to J Dawgs, a local hot dog hangout. I found out JDawgs was crazy busy this morning, in fact all week. I just happened to stop by during a less busy time today so my stop was short. Fast service is the norm actually.
I love these hot dogs—and I generally don’t even like hot dogs. If you ever come to Provo, UT, you can’t leave without enjoying a J Dawg! Try either the beef or Polish (which is beef with spices)! You choose the toppings from the list: yellow banana peppers, onions, sauerkraut, jalapeños, and the “secret sauce!”
The savory tastiness and deliciousness of a J Dawg is the “secret sauce.” I don’t really know what the secret sauce has in it to make is so good because it is, well, a secret! So I immediately thought of the song “Secret Love” sung by Doris Day for today’s song!
