She asked him if he wanted breakfast.Â About one Saturday a month she fixes something special.
He said, “I could eat.Â Nothing heavy though.”
She said, “Oh.Â I had bacon and eggs planned.”
He smiled.Â “Bacon is good.Â Bacon. Eggs.Â Maybe some toast and juice, too.”
She gave him that look and said, “Bacon, eggs, toast, juice?Â What, no hash browns?Â And how about pancakes?Â Oh and cinnamon rolls.Â Don’t forget cinnamon rolls. Or would you rather have donuts?Â And fresh fruit.Â We can’t forget the fresh fruit can we?”
He said, “Thank you, dear, but I think bacon, eggs, toast and juice will be plenty.Â Really. Nothing heavy.”
“All right, then.” She said.
He arranged his laptop on his knees and stayed in bed.Â She took herself off to the kitchen where She cooked bacon and eggs, toasted toast, and poured tall, cold glasses of juice.Â Then She called him to the table and set the food down in front of him.Â He looked at the food; crisp bacon, eggs over-easy, golden brown toast, and fresh, chilled grapefruit juice. Was that good enough to suit him?
He wanted silverware, too.
“But you said nothing heavy,” she reminded him.
He gave her that look.Â “I’ll make an exception for the silverware,” He answered.
Why can’t He ever just say what he wants right up front instead of always making her guess?
I woulda gone for the cinnamon rolls…heh heh
Kelley -then he would have had to get up, get dressed and go to the diner ….
Polona — yeah, that’s what I think, too!
You two! 🙂
Betty — we can’t seem to help it.
Men are so difficult. They lack proper communication skills.
Nessa — indeed!
hey, maybe plastic party ware would have been a lighter alternative.
Tilden — we don’t have that stuff in our “trying to be green” house.
I would thank that she would know that he doesn’t eat breakfast with his hands and would automatically take the silverware with the breakfast. I’m just sayin’ it’s not like the first time breakfast has been served by her
Sure, Thom. Take his side. Men!
My photography is available for purchase – visit Around the Island Photography and bring home something beautiful today!
Robin — yeah. Why couldn’t he just enjoy the big picture?
He sure is picky.
Wouldn’t the glass of juice be heavier?
That is so funny! And my hubby says that to me every night! I’m getting a little tired of it!
Bacon, eggs, toast and coffee in bed? Quilly, I want you at my house.
Did he eat it all? LOL
You’ve convinced me that next time around, I need to marry a good cook! That sounds heavenly (with or without silverware)
Men, they always change their mind and are never clear.
But beware if we start having the same attitude!
