It has been a good long while since I’ve settled a debate between Tate and myself here on the ol’ blog. (This is in no way a reflection of fewer arguments between Tate and I, DEFINITELY NOT, but a reflection on the lack of even slightly humorous debates recently.)
This is so dumb, I want to thank you all ahead of time for clearly being on my side for this one. Because REALLY. THIS IS SO DUMB.
On Monday, I had to bring the breakfast for my bible study/just moved support group. Growing up in my house, a quick and easy breakfast for such an event would most likely have been a store bought coffee cake, courtesy of everyone’s personal chef (AND LOYAL FRIEND), Sara Lee. Sara Lee makes a lovely assortment of coffee cakes which EVERYONE is familiar with and enjoys. Nobody doesn’t like Sara Lee! Or is it Nobody does like Sara Lee!
Our group this past Monday was small, with only a few of us able to come so I had a lot of coffee cake left over. I brought it home and that evening when Tate got home, he was curious.
“What is this stuff?” he asked.
OBVIOUSLY he was just asking a rhetorical question because DUH! If you looked at it, it was CLEARLY a coffee cake.
Tate could see that I was looking at him like he was an idiot, so he repeated the question. “No seriously. What is this stuff?”
I explained that it was coffee cake with as much annoyance in my voice as I could muster because having to explain coffee cake to someone is like explaining chocolate or beer!
After my “explanation,” Tate floored me when he just shrugged like, “huh! Coffee cake. Interesting idea.” Like, he’d never HAD COFFEE CAKE.
(Background information for fairness to Tate: His mom isn’t a Sara Lee coffee cake breakfast serving kind of woman. She handmakes the most delicious Stollen in cases that require a breakfast bread sort of dish.)
(But still, I bet even his mother won’t believe that he hasn’t HAD or at least HEARD OF coffee cake.)
Please help me settle this debate, that coffee cake is COMMON and most people have HEARD OF it and they have EATEN it.
