Hatched

I do plenty of silly things now and then, and lately, I’ve run out of excuses for the mindless things I’ve done.  It’s like there’s some missing link between my thought processes that my brain just skips without realising.

I have no excuse for dining at an egg-inspired all-breakfast place and not ordering anything to do with eggs.

I’m saying tata to breakfasts and lunches.

Now that’s reliability – doing one thing right and well each time without fail, namely, their Eggs Benedict.  Read more of this post
