Heart-spotting Contest Entry

Jane P. was in Sin City this past weekend; and during her adventures along the Strip (most of which are duty-bound to “stay in Vegas”), she ventured into the Las Vegas location of M&M’s World next to the MGM Hotel & Casino. And there, she found love…

Twisted Love

Waffles are scary. So are pancakes, omelettes, skillets, scrambles…pretty much anything you’d find on a Denny’s breakfast menu. Except bacon. Bacon is always comforting.

Maybe scary is the wrong word. Alarming? No…disconcerting. Yes, that’s the word for it. Waffles are disconcerting.

It’s not them. It’s me. When it comes to breakfast, I’m a creature of habit with a very low threshold for unpredictability. My daily bowl of granola is safe and reliable; but with waffles and omelettes and the like, there’s just so much that can go wrong. A soggy waffle or a watery omelette or a pancake uncooked in the middle can derail your entire day. Who needs that?

So on Sunday, when my wife got a call from her cousin inviting us to drop by for waffles, I panicked. “Tell them we’re contagious with H1N1,” I whisper-shouted into her un-telephoned ear. (Sundays are simply too precious to ruin with the chaos of breakfast run riot!) But too late: “We’ll be there shortly,” she said. The horror, I thought in a way I think even Marlon Brando would have nodded approvingly at. The horror…

My worst fears have a habit of hardly ever materializing, and Sunday’s wafflefest was no exception. The waffles weren’t only tasty and unsoggy, they were heart-shaped…as if our hosts, Claire and Joe, somehow knew they’d need to put my own tremulous heart at ease. Still, never was anything more appreciated than my Monday bowl of granola. You faithful, unwavering, calorie-laden clusters of candied oats…I love you.

Melting My Hearts

On gift-giving occasions, my wife used to complain that “You’re so hard to buy for. I never know what to get you. Make me a list.” And my list was always the same: cycling stuff • crossword puzzle books • coffee shop gift cards. What’s so hard about that?

Well, it seems that since I started writing this blog, the mystery of “What should I get Stephen?” has been answered. Anything heart-shaped.

My latest pressie: a Plastis ice-cube tray from Ikea.
