15. It almost felt like being a kid watching Grandpa making you a treat.

Or give you a cooking lesson. I remember him doing a kind of play-by-play as he was mixing up our drinks, describing how you put this in - about this much - and then you stir it up like this, and add some of this, and then ...

I discovered Carl Reiner as a kid watching the “Dick Van Dyke Show.” Didn’t know a lot about him back then and I was too young to have watched “Your Show of Shows”. I learned about “The 2000 Year Old Man” during college radio, and his other work beyond that. Still absolutely love pretty much ANYTHING by Mel Brooks, and anything by Mel Brooks usually had the Reiner touch in there somewhere too.

And frankly, I don’t remember much about the interview with him, but that moment at the bar drinking home made egg cream with him - I will NEVER forget that!

And it was delicious, too! That’s one memory that quite literally leaves a good taste in the mouth.
