Hot Chips For Breakfast?


Back when I was in high school, I remember going to PE class, having a conversation about the right food to eat. It was a special day for the class. We were starting a special week about eating healthy and exercising properly. The first thing my teacher decided to do was discuss what is our favorite breakfast meals. That way, he can tell who needed to workout more.

While he was going down the row and asking us about our favorite meals, I was very puzzled by five different students. Two of them were eating hot chips in the middle of class saying "I'm eating my breakfast right now. I've been eating it since freshman year."

We were all seniors at the time.

As for the other two, they said that they eat hot chips along with grits for breakfast. My mind wanted to explode at that moment. I didn't even want to say my favorite meals. Sadly, I was next to say it.

"My food is very traditional," I said. "I have pancakes, scrambled eggs, and sausages. I still eat it to this day. It's wonderful."

The moment I said that the room felt cold for a couple of seconds. We had the heater on because it was winter season, but the atmosphere just decreased dramatically.

One student finally spoke out and said "When was the last time you heard a meal like that?"

Once again, there was no response. I was incredibly shocked to see something like that happening in the room. Ever since then, I have been paying attention to the people around me. Every where I go I see a bag of hot chips being consumed on a daily basis. There are kids eating hot chips every day. Even though it is completely fine with me that hot chips is a good profit, I really don't think it should be added to the breakfast menu.
