You know that feeling….
When you’re on a brunch date, you arrive at a restaurant, and the hostess tells you that the wait is going to be 20 minutes…
And you think aloud to your date…’ok, great… let’s take a quick stroll around the block’… and you two take a quick stroll around the block.
It’s sunny and it’s Sunday and everything seems lovely…
Until you get back from your 18 minute stroll and check in with the hostess to find out that your wait time has increased in your absence… to like… an hour!!!
And your heart sinks. And you want coffee. And you really want some eggs. And your kinda want to kick the hostess in the knee cap.
But you’re with a date. You’re with a brunch date…. so you just sit with it. You just sit with the wait time. And you don’t complain. And you try not to think about coffee. And you try not to glare at the patrons already enjoying their eggs… those jerks. And you just wait. And wait. And wait.
And then your brunch date finds the random rogue hair that sometimes grows out of your chin. You call it your old lady hair. And you’re usually really good about plucking your one old lady hair… but you misplaced your tweezers and your old lady hair got out of control… And you’ve waited so long for breakfast that your date has taken to intently staring at your face and has spotted your old lady hair…
And now you have to have a really awkward conversation about your old lady hair and all you want to do is dig a whole in the ground and crawl into it… And you curse that stupid hostess (who probably isn’t that stupid) for making you wait for your eggs so long that your old lady hair has been spotted.
And you keep your hand on your chin for the rest of the date.
You know that feeling? Yea… me too.
Let’s avoid that this weekend. Make brunch for someone.
And keep your rogue old lady chin hair in check. For your health. For your dating health.
I can not believe I just told you about my rogue old lady chin hair.
This is totally embarrassing.
Perhaps I can distract you with these Cornmeal Molasses Pancakes. They were really tasty.
This Crustless Quiche had spinach and blue cheese and walnuts.
How’s that for fancy!?
I want to marry these cinnamon rolls. I already have the dress.
…. Stop looking at me like that.
There’s cream cheese! In the cinnamon rolls!
Wait… did that picture of cinnamon rolls make you feel fat?
Have a smoothie. I’m going to.
And while we’re in the kitchen making that smoothie… how about some 30 Minute Croissants?
There go our healthy thoughts… right out the window again.
You might consider turning these Cheddar Black Pepper Biscuits into egg sandwiches.
That’s a good idea.
It’s up to you.
Get your brunch on… but don’t you dare wait in line for it.
You are hilarious and your blog is a wonderful way to lift me from my serious case of the Mondays. Many thanks.
How about multiple roque chin hair? agghhh – i will some day have saved enough to have it removed with laser. In the mean time i’ll cook & bake, thanks for reminding me I’m not the only woman with chin hair.
Looking at your website makes me SOOO hungry! My mom is always making your recipes. Thank you!!
I love you, Joy! You make me feel normal!

Some words of wisdom for the troll (sorry, I can’t recall it’s name)….
“The more you nurture a feeling of loving kindness, the happier and calmer you’ll be.”
I believe it was said by Ghandi. Who should know.
Try it, you might be surprised at how well it works. When you’re thinking something nasty, SAY something nice. Seriously…words that may seem hard to say at first, become easier and easier and you will see your black heart start to come alive.
Joy, you truly are a JOY to visit, I love how you write, your smiling face, all of your chin hairs, and most of all, your delicious baking :) Never change the way you are!
