Breakfast for Dinner (31DC2015)

BreakfastforDinnerHand

Does anyone remember the ads for sugar bomb cereals like Fruity Pebbles and Count Chocula that used to run during Saturday morning cartoons in the ’80s? The ones where an announcer all hopped up on Red Dye No. 6 and Frankenberry dust would bellow that your bowl of crunchy neon glucose was “part of your balanced breakfast”? And then they’d show these crazy feasts that included bacon, eggs, toast, fruit salad, milk, juice and, yes, your bowl of mouth-shredding Cap’n Crunch, with the insinuation that you eat this way every morning? I have never once in my life had a breakfast like that! I’ve come awfully close at a couple of my mother’s Christmas buffets, but in terms of a sit-down, “I eat a short stack every day before school/work!” – no, never. Hmm, could we be overcompensating for something here, Big Cereal?

These nails that break the fast have a bowl of something sugar smacky on my thumb, but otherwise, it’s quite a respectable spread. This manicure is actually my entry towards day five’s theme of blue in the 31 Day Nail Art Challenge on account of the polish I used as the background, OPI’s No Room for the Blues. I use No Room ALL the time, at least a couple of times a week, because it is a perfect, neutral sky blue, and applies flawlessly. The breakfast goodies are tasty-looking, but sort of incidental!

    LOL!! You do have a way with words…I am picturing the announcer with this dust all over his face, buggy eyed, screaming in to the mic. 😀

    Most excellent nail art, I really want to have breakfast for dinner now!

    • Thank you very much for saying that – I LOVE it when people actually pay attention to my ramblings and not just the nail art part. 🙂 A friend of mine says I have a flair for descriptive theatricality, which is in itself quite a theatrically descriptive sentence!

      • LOL love it! Yeah I do appreciate the nail art (I do not do it myself, just regular old manis), but I tend to be drawn to the blogs that have a fun writing personality, such as yours!

      • Aw, thank you – that’s super sweet of you to say. I love my little nail creations, but I love writing even more, and it never ceases to amaze me that people like you show up to chime in on my weird little ramblings – it’s totally awesome. Thanks for being part of the fun. 🙂
