The Husband cannot make a decision to save his life. He will stare at a menu for five + minutes (even if there’s only two vegetarian options) and he looked at engagement rings for six months before settling on one. He’s indecisive.
On the other hand, I am very decisive. I make a decision quickly and stick by it. That doesn’t meant that it was the best decision – I just make a decision. Any decision!
However, this combination actually works out quite well because the Husband hems and haws for a bit, I can tell that he really thinks that A is a better choice than B but doesn’t want to say it aloud yet, so then I say, “You should pick A,” and he does.
Which is why when the Husband and Isaac went to Blockbuster by themselves last night, I knew we were in for a doozy of a movie selection. No offense, boys.
Here’s the story, as they told it.
They were standing in Blockbuster and had two choices: Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader or The Kids are All Right. They looked up them on Rotten Tomatoes and saw this:
However, Isaac said he really liked fantasy movies, and the Husband agreed, so they bumped Chronicles’ rating up 20 points, to 70% . They debated back and forth which would be a better choice, and of course, the Husband couldn’t decide (even though I know he refuses to watch movies rated less than 75%), so he suggested they flip a coin. All they had was a credit card, so they ended up flipping a VISA. The Chronicles won. Apparently, at this point, a ‘really hot girl’ down the aisle started to laugh aloud at them.
Anyway – of course, Chronicles was pretty bad. Not a good movie at all… not even a good kid movie, in my opinion. All I can say that the graphics were good.
In honor of being indecisive and getting’ stuck with a kid movie, we brainstormed and cooked this amazing kid breakfast: Panda Puff French Toast.
For once, there was no debate: this breakfast is definitely a winner!
- 1/2 cup Panda Puff cereal, or other kids’ cereal, crushed
- 1 egg, beaten
- 2 – 3 slices bread (I had three because the Glutino slices are miniature)
- Fruit for topping
- Heat and grease griddle to medium-high,
- In shallow bowl, beat egg.
- In separate bowl, spread out crushed cereal.
- Dip both sides of bread in egg, then cereal, and then place on hot griddle. Repeat with other slices and cook until golden brown on each side, 2 – 3 minutes.
- Serve with syrup and fruit.
Kids’ stuff isn’t always so bad!
