A Message From My Waffle Iron:
WI: Oh! Hey! Hey there…Long time no see!
Me: What? Oh, hey. What do you mean, long time no see? I just saw you last week. Remember..pumpkin waffles?
WI: Oh, yeah, yeah, I know. Yeah. That’s was great. It’s just that, I started to think that, you know, maybe it could be like old times.
Me: Old times?
WI: Yeah. Remember back when you made that impulse buy on Amazon and bought me and and we had this intense love affair for a good, oh, four weeks or so. Chocolate chip waffles. Blueberry waffles. Every sunday brunch, all hot and steamy.
Me: Um. Yeah, I guess.
WI: It’s just that, well, that was like TWO YEARS ago and then I just sat here. Next to that mini slow cooker you bought. Why did you buy that anyway?
WI: Nevermind. But seriously, can we, like, hang out again? I miss you.
Me: Uh, yeah. Sure. I’m kind of seeing someone else, but if that’s cool with you…was thinking about trying out these new blueberry waffles.
WI: SOMEONE ELSE???
ME: It’s been two years.
WI: Well, OK. I’ll take what I can get. Just no flax this time. I want the good stuff.
Me: Sorry. I’m on a health kick now. There may be flax involved. Still interested?
WI: Flax.. OK. I guess I can deal with that. It’ll be worth it. Meet you on the countertop. Sunday morning. 9:00.
Me: It’s a date.
