Yesterday morning I helped my son, James, make breakfast for hubby. We made what I like to call Cowboy Hash – it’s when you throw the sausage, potatoes, onions, peppers, and eggs all in one pot and cook it together… so yummy. Anyway, we made this lovely breakfast for Jim for Father’s Day and I even conquered my control-freak-self long enough to let James crack the eggs without my help – he is almost 11 after all. And he did a beautiful job, by the way. Again, anyway, we cooked the breakfast, toasted the toast, made coffee, poured the orange juice, and presented all of our efforts to hubby as a breakfast-in-bed Father’s Day present.
Avery, may I add, was absolutely no help to us whatsoever. She woke up with us, but when I wasn’t looking she went and crawled into bed with Jim. By the time we got breakfast up to Jim, Avery was sweetly cuddled up next to him and was snoring in his face… Happy Father’s Day!
After we got hubby situated in bed with his tray of delicious goodness, I went back downstairs to grab my coffee and guess who followed me… hubby. Apparently eating breakfast in bed is not comfortable… and apparently he couldn’t humor us, either. But I’m not bitter! Not one tiny little bite… I mean bit. Did I say bite? Now why would I say that? It’s not like I wanted to bite him or anything… weird.
So we all ate our breakfast downstairs in a most ordinary fashion. But hubby felt special anyways due to our efforts, and James felt special due to his efforts, and Avery felt special (and well-rested) due to her lack of effort, and I felt like going back to bed.
Now, here’s where I need your help. James dished up an extra helping of Cowboy Hash for himself and sprinkled it with some shredded cheese (as anyone must do in this house) and look what the universe created on his plate…
Wanna see it closer?
Two tiny shreds of cheese formed this… a perfect 12.
Shouldn’t it be a perfect 10?
Anyway, I assure you, absolutely NO manipulation was necessary for this to occur. James is a huge Star Wars fan (okay it’s more like an obsession), so he probably thinks it’s “the force” attempting to reveal something to him.
I tried to decode this message and came up with this: The 12 represents the age James will be when he finally accepts the fact that the Jedi are not real and that he will never join them. Poor little guy.
Now it’s your turn to decode this message. Leave a comment with your answer. I will have James read them before bed tonight (8:30 PST) and he will pick his favorite. The winner of his favorite decoded message will win this…
1 Satin Deluxe Eyeshadow Duo in chocolate cherry
1 ColorTrend Lip Gloss in sugar coated pink
1 Glimmersticks Eye Liner in stone
GOOD LUCK & MAY THE FORCE BE WITH YOU.
