We received a “Catalog of Favorites” in the mail the other day. Favorites? Well, the catalog was a clothing catalog and, frankly, I am about tapped out on clothes these days, at least until I cull previously termed favorite clothes out of my closet.
But there are other favorites that could be talked about here: favorite foods, TV shows, music, books, movies, sports, to name a few.
But thinking of favorites—foods and music in particular—here are some people you may have heard of and their food and music favorites. Some of these may surprise you!
