There was just one bagel left in our house this morning. I wasn't particularly hungry at 7am, so I toasted it for Allyson upon her request. But as I began my drive into town, I thought how nice it would be to have a bagel with cream cheese on it for breakfast. I had pondered getting a BK breakfast sandwich, or a Mcgriddle. But that was just too much substance. I just needed a little light something to sit in my stomache. I thought about all the places in Alexandria that I could have breakfast at, and I couldn't think of one that would meet my needs. It was then that I missed Times Square. Just a plain bagel with strawberry cream cheese, please. Upon racking my brain some more, I remembered that Caribou sold muffins. French Toast muffin it is. It did its job, just a light little breakfast. However, it did not satisfy me nearly as much as a plain bagel with strawberry cream cheese would have. If I was smarter, or wealthier, or had more equity in my house, I suppose I would open a bagel shop. What could be more fitting than a bagel for breakfast?
