What's For Breakfast...

Pizza. Not cold leftovers, either. I picked my kids up from their mom's this morning and we stopped and grabbed a couple from Little Caesar on the way home.

I love it, fresh hot pizza for breakfast - brilliant. Most of the pizza places here aren't ready to serve until about 11am (or even 11:30) as I've learned from - many, many times - showing up early with a forlorn look on my face. Sometimes, they'll throw a few slices into the oven for you; sometimes you just get grumbled at and told to wait :(.

Starbucks this dawn with the sports page. Last Saturday nite; after Lester's brilliant seven innings,
Joe gave the apple to 'Shack instead of Wick...all hell broke loose and mound musical chairs ensued.
Later, in the 10th Kimbrill gave away two homers, throwing 94.8 mph. Unfortunately 94 and some change
ain't getting it done. K's fast ball has slipped a bit. Unless he can buck up to over 95mph his effectiveness
as a major league closer is questionable. A crap shooter throwing dice.
Cubs need to score in St Louis tomorrow and the next several days.

Amazingly, but Chapman's loss of a few mphs, like Kimbrill's, is incredibly meaningful. My God, hard to believe, but 98 is much harder to hit than 94. I'm sure they'd all look like the speed of light to me standing at the plate.

Waiter: ... and that comes with a fried egg on top

Me: I'll have that, thank you

Super girlfriend: What did you order?

Me: umm, mumble, mumble with a fried egg on top

Super girlfriend (with a disdainful look on her face): You don't know what you ordered; you just got it because of the fried egg on top

Me: (indignantly) That's not true I ordered a (pause, confidence giving way to contrition), yeh, I have no idea other than that it has a fried egg on it

SGF: (wistfully) I understand

Me: You're thinking about all the proposals you turned down before me, aren't you?

SGF: (without rancor) Wouldn't you be?

Me: (sadly) Yes

You'd love 'em. Basically leftover corn tortilla chips from supper last night, (tostadas or taco shells...doritos type chips are waaay to salty, but will work in a pinch) tossed into a skillet full of enchilada sauce to soften up and topped with shredded cheese... and of course the aforementioned fried egg.

Starbucks joe with the sportspage. 14k boss bull Q's rack, but failed pen denied whiskey Jolly Roger flag.
Spent the entire day yesterday explaining why the Cubs were World Series caliber.

Darvish pitched a splendid game but Joe screwed the pooch by going to the pen alas.
