I want to like it. I want to like it. I want to like it.
Isn’t it posh to say “Let’s just meet for breakfast!”. Very stepford wife. I want to be posh and girly and like french toast. I want to know exactly how to order an attractive sounding coffee. I want to be able to say I’ll have the granola instead of “I’ll have to breakfast burrito, BUT you HAVE to scramble the eggs REALLY, REALLY dry… like borderline brown. Oh, and leave out the tomatoes and mushrooms, ok?”. Sometimes I’ll think to myself:
What would it be like to really enjoy breakfast? What is going to breakfast like for normal people? Do normal people worry that there won’t be anything on the menu worth spending $15 on? Why am I even worrying about this? Order toast and be done. But I don’t really want toast, plus it usually comes out all buttered, floppy and soggy. Does anyone really like toast that way, there’s nothing toasty about it? Why am I even going to breakfast? Why did I suggest this, I know I hate breakfast? … and the list goes on.
I do like biscuits and gravy, plus an occasional egg dish. But that’s about it. Once in a while I can muster the appetite for some pancakes or something more regular, but if given the choice I’ll choose lunch or dinner over breakfast any day.
What’s your favorite meal? Any meal you particularly dislike?
