Overheard at Roseholme:
A: [head stuck in cabinet] "Any ideas about brunch?" [emerges with waffle iron]
B: "I dunno. I am not so very much about waffles."
A: "Yeah! 'Toadmeal: the warty goodness of toads combined with the high fiber of oatmeal!'"
B: [snickering] "Toadmeal!"
A: "For all the toad-eaters on your staff!"
Sometimes mumbling leads to serendipitous results. Just sayin'. Also? No matter how bad the economy gets, I do not expect "toadmeal" to catch on. But you never know.
* Around here, an egg fried in a hole punched in a slice of bread. Fast, filling, cheap.
