Well, my day’s off to a fine start……….look at that delicious, delectable Belgium waffle I got at my hometown diner! I mean, I couldn’t ask for anything more—melted whipped butter and hot maple syrup all on a golden brown Belgium Waffle. Mmmmmmmm.
Well, NOT SO FAST! Apparently, AFTER I had already taken this waffle home (since I got it to-go), microwaved it, and eaten half of it—Herman, the waffle bug, made an appearance in my face and had apparently been cooked into it on the backside at the diner before it was even given to me!!
At this rate, I’m going to lose even more weight—which I can’t afford to do.
Yeah, now that I think about it, I do distinctly remember asking for a ‘side of BUG’ with my waffle. HOW DOES THIS EVEN HAPPEN!!!!!! Gross! Yeah, just click on that picture there so you can get a much better shot of it IN YOUR FACE like I did—legs and all!!!
Thank GOODNESS, as I cut the next bite, I had turned the fork over because that sucker was headed right for my mouth. I initially thought it was a crispy burnt piece and was going to eat it anyway.
But something told me to do some further investigating. So I took my fork out of the waffle and proceeded to move the ‘black spot’ with my fork. Oh, my—EWWWWWW!!!
Upon further inspection, there were obvious legs protruding from a rock hard body that had been cooked to death. This was clearly a homicide. Now my waffle has become a murder scene.
WHY CAN’T I HAVE A SIMPLE MORNING EATING A WAFFLE IN PEACE?!!
So, if you have nothing else to do today, inspect every black spot you see in your food before eating it. Never assume it’s just pepper, a black bean, or a crispy burnt piece of the food. Better to assume it’s a crispy, burnt bug and save yourself!
Take-Away Life Lesson: Never assume there’s NOT a herd of dead bugs on the backside of your waffle just because the front of it is bugless.
