Daughter: Dad, dad, What’s for breakfast? Dad: [Dad mumbles something]
Daughter: Dad?… What’s for breakfast? Dad: Uh. there’s a banana on the kitchen counter. Enjoy. Daughter: Dad, that banana’s all bruised, and it looks like the cat took a bite out of it last night….Dad. Wake up. Dad: Okay. Uh, there’s some cereal in the cupboard. Help yourself. Daughter: But there’s no milk. Dad: Well, just mix up some powered milk. Daughter: Ah, no way. That stuff is nasty and warm. Come on, Dad. Dad: Uh, okay. I guess I could make some pancakes. Daughter: Uh, no. The last time you made pancakes, they were as hard as a rock. Even the dog wouldn’t touch them. Dad: That bad? [ Yeah.] Alright. Wait! Why in the world are we having this conversation anyway? You’re 19 years old. Make your own breakfast. I’m going back to bed. Daughter: Because you love me . . plus you said that you’d make something for me if I cleaned the dishes last night. Dad: Okay. How about some eggs and bacon? I can’t go wrong there. Daughter: Okay, but don’t put any of that funny stuff in it . . . you know, those weird mushrooms like you did last time. Dad: Okay, okay. So, you want me to keep things simple, right? Daughter: Exactly. But, please hurry. My friend is picking me up in a few minutes. Dad: On a Saturday morning? Daughter: Yeah. He’s taking me fishing. Dad: Fishing? Since when did you start liking fishing? Daughter: Since Dirk gave me this ring! What do you think? Dad : What? Wait. I’m not going to ask. Let me get breakfast on the table . . . Then, we’ll have a long chat. Dad: Oh, he’s here. I’ll just take the $20 bill out of your wallet. I can buy breakfast on the way. Bye.
