Well, even if you didn’t cogitate over it much, I hope you thoroughly masticated during your breakfast.
(words that sound dirty but aren’t...)
LOL My dining partners were ages 6 and 10. The 6 year old was shoving food in his mouth while the last bite fell out on his plate. He got a lesson in eating like a gentleman. Both of them did. They eat like pigs. Not an appetizing sight...so I had to teach them some manners. Probably, a bit of a downer for them, just like it was for me. Honestly, their parents allow that? Disgusting.
ooops.....your grade A++
I paraphrase “A Christmas Story” with my kids, frequently, at meals -
“don’t show me how the piggies eat!”
Why go out for breakfast on the day you can’t have bacon or sausage?
The constitutional scholar had to cogitate life without servants, power, and the ability to pillage all the 57 states with taxes. Either that or Valerie Jarret was on her knees.
I turned 60 last year...too old for that now. ;^) Since it’s my first chance to do so, I chose to drop that. I earned the right the hard way, by getting OLD. LOL
Besides that, they have a lot of the menu that is vegetarian...the diner is always packed. I would say half the menu is meat free at breakfast. Hot oatmeal, pancakes, waffles and french toast. All excellent and home-made. Even their toast is from home-made bread.
oh, my....that looks yummy!
My diocese says that turning 60 allowed you to skip fasting, not to skip avoiding meat. Cogitate on that! LOL
What are you, a nihilist?
Any syrup-laden breakfast just doesn’t seem complete without sausages swimming in it.
Oh I hate that! We went out to dinner last weekend and the young mother was across from us easily weighed 400 pounds, probably more. The reason I even mention her weight is because I could tell she was very self conscious and desperately unhappy. She didn’t make eye contact with anyone and ignored her children. Both children were very overweight and the little girl who was only about 4 years old was just shoving food in her mouth with no manners at all! Unfortunately I was facing them so I was getting a real eye full. It is not uncommon to see adults chew with their mouths open too - which just makes me want to ask them if they never learned any manners at all....good for you teaching the youngsters some table manners!!
I DO live in a liberal diocese....we don’t even have a bishop right now to change anything. the only advantages are that and no kneelers.
