Most important meal of the day

Every morning, I wake up and eat breakfast. This usually ranges from something small like a bagel from Einstein Bros. Bagels or something more filling like the pancake platter from Roscoe’s. I have to eat breakfast in order to survive because if I don’t, I just might go crazy!

They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day and, no, not because it jumpstarts your metabolism and helps you burn calories. It’s much deeper than that, and I alone have the secret formula to why breakfast is the most important meal of the day.

Now, let me tell you why.

Yesterday morning, it was ingrained in my mind to eat a few bowls of Reese's Puffs whenever I woke up from my deep slumber. So, I slept, and the morning finally arrived. But it came quickly. Too quickly, which caused me to oversleep.

As soon as I awoke, it was already 1:10 p.m.! I missed breakfast!

“Oh, where did the time go?” I wondered.

I eventually tried to start my day by brushing my teeth, but what was odd was that I couldn't find my toothpaste. This forced me to leave the situation as it was, and I didn’t brush them. Then I decided to put my shoes on to go for a walk, but the unusual thing was that I couldn't find any left shoes to any of my pairs, so I unfortunately had to step out with two rights!

I noticed this recurring trend throughout my day of everything going wrong, like it was some kind of divine message. I tried making a PB&J, but had no jelly. I tried making Kool-Aid to quench my thirst, but had no sugar!

“Could this day get any worse?” I thought.

And that's when it finally hit me.

I didn’t eat breakfast this morning.

The moral of the story is to eat breakfast or else you just might end up walking to class with a pair of two right shoes, too.
