What Did You Eat for Breakfast?

Waiting on the corner to cross Ross this morning, I overheard one guy — earring, late 40s — say to his buddy, “I woke up at 6 again. Ate that veal chop. Just cold, right off the bone. It was perfect.”

Made me think about the weird breakfasts we sometimes eat. This morning I ate a handful of raw almonds, 1/3 of an apple (honey crisp variety, I think), and about six Doritos (spicy cheese or something like that). Breakfast of champions?
