I have to eat breakfast.  It’s not an option for me.  When I wake up I’m like a zombie, except instead of groaning BRAAAAAAAINS I go CAAAAAAAAARBS.  Breakfast, like a morning shower or a good cup of coffee, is a necessity.

But there is one meal that I love more than breakfast, because I don’t just need it.  I desire it.

That meal is second breakfast.

Sam (@portorikan if you follow us on twitter) and I had a funny conversation about second breakfast while driving home from a dinner  at his parents’ house one night.

ME:  Did you remember the plate your mom made us?

SAM: Yeah it’s there in the back.

ME: Ok cool.

ME: Did you remember that jumbo carrot cake muffin your mom wanted to give me?

SAM:  Yeah.


ME:  Cuz that’s gonna be my second breakfast.

SAM:  Second breakfast huh?

ME:  Yeah!  That’s like 90% of the reason I work out: so I can eat SECOND breakfast.  It’s my favorite meal of the day.

SAM:  Maybe that’s why you’re not losing any wei-

ME:  Stop pestering me with your stupid logic.

We love each other.
