The world is surely coming to an end. I achieved this conclusion when Julia and I rounded the corner and found ourselves in the frozen breakfast food section of our Wal-mart store. There, in the freezer case, was one lonely box of homestyle Eggo waffles. A sign taped to the freezer door said, “Due to a nation-wide shortage, Wal-mart can no longer supply Kellogg’s Eggo waffles.”
I bought that last box and now there are no more Eggo waffles. How can we go on?
The Eggo shortage may not be resolved until the middle of 2010. I suggest you make reservations now for breakfast at my house. Otherwise, you’re not going to have a tasty toaster waffle for a long, long time.
