Sniglet Of The DaySirlines (sir’ lines) – n. The lines on a grilled steak.

One sure-fire way to know that you are getting a great steak is to look for the sirlines. These lovely dark stripes are the indication of the fact that the steak you ordered, or that some barbeque cook prepared for you is going to be off the chain, tasting of charcoal flamed goodness. Most North American hominid carnivores agree that there is nothing more delicious or delightful than to see those sirlines on a steak. No matter whether it came from a steakhouse restaurant with a big baked potato on the side, a Chinese buffet with chicken chou chou and stir-fried broccoli close by, or just on you own grill with Mom’s potato salad and roasted corn to make it complete, seeing the sirlines is definitely worth the wait. No matter how aesthetically perfect those sirlines might seem, they will not last long. So dig in and destroy them, because that is what you are supposed to do. You’ve been tortured by the smell of burning marinated steer flesh for far too long, and the sirlines are what is going to take you from gastronomic hell to heaven in less than a minute. Being this patient might be a virtue in itself, and definitely worthy of the reward you are about to receive.
