Flashback Friday: Baby Steps

Earlier this spring:

I sat with Sprout while she ate breakfast.

“Wah-fah?” she said holding out an offering to me from her plate.

“No thank you, sweetheart,” I said to her. “I have a breakfast meeting. What do you think I should order for breakfast?”

She thought for a moment and said, “wah-fah.” A moment later she said, “pan-cak.”

Thinking that a waffle or a short stack would make for a sluggish morning, despite the coffee intake, I promised Sprout that I would tell her what I ended up eating that morning.

A few hours later, I texted the contents of my breakfast to WonderWife™ with instructions to tell Sprout. Around lunchtime I got a call from WW™.

“I told Sprout what you ate for breakfast and all she wants to eat now is eggs and sausage.”

Cuz that's the best breakfast ever.

You didn't have bacon?

It's like I don't even know you anymore.

SFD stole my comment.

But, setting aside my shock at your bacon-less breakfast for just a moment ... I don't blame Sprout a bit.

Personally, I think breakfast foods are vastly underrated as a whole. Breakfast-for-dinner is one of my favorite things in the whole world.

Also, I think it's adorable that you texted her with your breakfast order. :)

Sundar...Well...its not bacon, but it was pretty good.

SciFi...Speaking of bacon--man cannot live by bacon alone. (So sayeth my doctor)

Zen...Bacon for breakfast is divine. But this place has really good turkey sausage. And I find that on work days, I'm better when I'm healthy.

You sure that when she said "Wah-fah?" that wasn't just short for "What the f**k?"

Daddy Geek Boy said...

Vance...Well, you know Sprout she probably was!
