What about second breakfast?

There is one thing that almost everyone knows about me. I like to eat. And I eat a lot. Seriously. Even my students know this about me and like to point it out, because all of my examples in class are about food. Time to make up a sentence on the spur of the moment? Yes, it's about food. Again.

This is just one reason why I like Pip and Merry from the Lord of the Rings so much.

I have been reading a lot of Shakespeare recently. (Hopefully I get to teach a class this summer.) In A Midsummer Night's Dream there is a word for the meal that comes after dinner: aftersupper. Forget fourth meal and all it's Taco Bell associations. I'm having aftersupper.

  1. I totally eat breakfast and then second breakfast an hour later. It's like a whole night without food wipes out the energy of first breakfast way too fast. Of course, Cary just makes fun of me cause I don't really eat after that. I like to cram in all my calories at the beginning of the day. But with breakfast having such delicious options, can you blame me?
