Adventures in Boredom: A Recent Conversation Between Me And Tiny












Tiny is of course my steadfast and loyal roommate, and like the Borg, she is one of two (EZ being two).

Me: I think we need a waffle iron.

Tiny: Why?

Me: To make waffles for brunch and stuff.

Tiny: Are we going to be making brunch?

Me: Totally.

Tiny: I'm not sure we have room for a waffle iron.

Me: Of course we do. We'll just stick it in that cabinet where we put the other appliances.

Tiny: That cabinet is pretty full. Can you make waffles without the iron?

Me: No. Those are called pancakes.

Maybe you can microwave them pancakes on the bottom of a boot? Redneck waffles!

We got one for a wedding present and have used it about, oh, 3 times in 6 years. But I like the idea that I could make waffles if I want to.

I so seldom use it, it's kept in the basement and therefore an even bigger pain in the neck to use.

I'm with newsha. One of my favorite breakfast places serves eggos. if its good enough for them, it is good enough for you.

I say its better to have options.

If I came over for brunch, and I couldn't have any waffles because you had no "room" for a waffle iron, I'd be pissed.

The Guv'ner said...

Either way they are called "delicious"! :)

What about a crepe maker? That would be fancy.

Also, your roommates are killing even the simplest of your dreams.

Grant Miller said...

You have to get married to get a waffle iron. It's in the rules.

Be careful what you wish for. I have a criss-cross burn scar on the inside of my left forearm from a tragic waffle-iron accident in 1992.

On the upside, my "brand" gives me street cred with breakfast ganstas.

Some Guy said...

Might I suggest a travel waffle iron. They're compact and double as a key chain.

McGone said...

Gawddammit... now I'm hungry for waffles.

You know, my wife and I had this exact conversation recently.
