Breakfast of Champions

Those of you that know me well, know that I am not much of a morning person. And it is a little harder to control my nasty thoughts at the top of the morning, especially if I haven't had breakfast yet or done the crossword. But because I was too lazy to go the day before, I was forced to go to the store this morning at the crack of dawn to do a bulk shop for a food lab. While there, my tummy was a grumblin' and all I had was pancakes on the brain. I knew I had some fruit and milk for a smoothie at school to be whipped up as soon as I was done. So I hurried through my list and headed to checkout. But as I stood in the checkout lane I couldn't help but question the breakfast the person in front of me was purchasing: a pack of gum, 1/2 Litter of Diet Coke and 1/2 litter of vodka. And as terrifying as it was to witness, my next thought was "That woman probably just dropped her kid off at school to attend my class. "
Note of the Day:
As a general rule, I try not to judge people. But sometimes I can't help myself. And the rest of the time, well, it usually ends up happening anyway. That's why I like my friends. If I am going to judge you, I can usually tell you to your face that I think you are crazy. But the rest of those lunatics out there, I have to smile and wait my turn at the checkout line

Mmmm...when I was in Maui, my breakfast each morning was POG and Vodka: sort of a Hawaiian smoothie. :-) I do question this woman's choice on the gum--that stuff'll kill you.

As someone far more eloquent than me once said "If you can't say anything nice, sit next to me." When I heard this, it struck a chord of truth with me, as if this was straight out of my own brain, just polished up. I believe this is one reason why you and I are friends - you love to talk and I love to encourage bad behavior. Great post!

I think I must be a little strange because when I see those people in line in front of me, I always think to myself how lucky those people are that they can just drink themselves silly when I actually have to go to work. It's envy not judgement I need to work on.
