What you ate for breakfast

They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day, don’t they? Well I’ve never really understood who ‘they’ are, nor have I cared for that matter. All I know is that I think they are wrong; after all, breakfast is the only mealtime where it would be deemed unacceptable to order a pizza, and I rather like pizza.

I wonder what ‘they’ actually eat for breakfast, those people that say it’s so important? I bet they have something boring, like Muesli or Weetabix without the sugar. I think that a persons choice of breakfast can say a lot about them. For example, I have an auntie and she has eaten porridge for breakfast every day for as long as she can remember. Every day at 6am like clockwork she sits down to have a bowl of old trusty. She too is like porridge in a lot of ways, comforting and reliable but overall pretty unadventurous.

I like porridge, but not enough to eat it every day. I mean, if we’re going to hold so much stock in breakfast being the be all and end all of meal times then it better be a right good spread. I’m talking continental, like they do in Europe.

Still, as I said I don’t agree about breakfast being the most important meal of the day so I’m not really one to make a fuss, especially before 9am. I’m more of a grab and go kind of girl. A quick fix to tide me over until lunchtime when the real meal goes down. Like this morning for instance, I was a running a little late, so I whacked a couple of those little round doughy things in the toaster. You know, those soft little things covered in dents that harden as they are burned? I packed my bag while they were toasting and when they were done I doused them in butter while they were still hot. That makes them tastier and easier to swallow.

In actual fact I have crumpets for breakfast most days; you can think of that what you like.
