Today's topic? BREAKFAST!
So the cafeteria where I work has a pretty decent breakfast special. It’s called the “2 Egg Platter” and it comes with (hold on to your horses!) 2 eggs (I know!), a choice of meat (BACON!), a serving of potatoes and a biscuit, all for $3.50. It’s not a bad deal and I don’t get hungry for lunch until nearly 2 in the afternoon and even at that, a sandwich usually does just fine.
But I'm a nice guy and I wouldn't do something like that.
More than once.
Oh, here's another thing: the ladle the server uses scoops up enough scrambled eggs in one scoop to equal two eggs. But sometimes the server will give me two scoops of eggs. So my 2 Egg Platter becomes a 4 Egg Platter.
Yes, the cholesterol might kill but I'm getting a pretty good deal on breakfast here.
St. Peter: You're here early.
Me: Yeah, those extra eggs with the 2 Egg Platter, man!
St. Peter: I understand, Dave-El. It is a very good breakfast bargain.
Me: Hey! You called me "Dave-El"!
St. Peter: Of course! I've read your blog.
Me: Sweeeeeeet! So, when do I get into heaven?
St. Peter: I've read... your blog.
Me: Uh oh.
By the way, I've run into this "not knowing what is on your own menu" thing at McDonald's. I don't think they offer this as part of the 24 hour breakfast but McDonald's has a steak and cheese bagel on their menu. At least in the locations I have been to, anyway.
But like the servers at the cafeteria at work, this is not common knowledge to the fine folks who work at Mickey D's.
Me: Yes, I would like the steak and cheese bagel please.
And I'm so glad my suffering amuses you.
Coming up on the blog thing....
Tomorrow is a new edition of This Campaign/This Damn Pain as we look at the increasingly surreal circumstances of living in a world with Donald Trump, Republican Presidential Nominee and the Democrats are once more snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.
Saturday, it's baseball... or boxing... or both.
Sunday, my Doctor Who fan fiction script continues with Episode Four of Lifetime Companion.
Thanks for popping by today and I hope you come back again. Until then, remember to be good to one another.
