do you want pancakes, he said

it was 
a lovely weekend 
weather-wise

 I beautified
 got a hair cut
 did some wandering
 visited the flea market
 all in all 
a quiet weekend

  I cant remember
 if
 it was Friday night
 or
 maybe Saturday morning

 there was a commercial
 for something
 maybe it was 
IHOP
 not sure

 I 
do 
remember
 it had
 pancakes 

I have had a serious pancake jones for months now

I said 
oooh pancakes

 Toonman replied 
you want pancakes?

 I said
 I love pancakes
 I was just commenting on the commercial

 Toonman said
 you want pancakes, we can make pancakes

 but
 we couldnt 
because 
we had 
neither 
pancake mix
 (or even flour should we have wanted insanely to make them from scratch) 
or 
milk 

Toonman
 put both on his shopping list
 so 
when I woke on Sunday morning
 right after
 he said 
good morning
 he said
 do you want pancakes for breakfast?

 I said no, but I wouldnt mind them for dinner 

Fast forward 
to 
Sunday night
around
6ish

 Toonman decided he was hungry
 PANCAKES!

 I said 
wait 

I need to take photos of this

 I heard him muttering
 about how he might do the whole box
 but
 I wasnt really listening
 I was getting the iPhone

 back in the kitchen

 he was getting down the mixing bowl,
 opening the pancake mix box 
 about to dump it into the mixing bowl 

WAIT 
move your hand 
so I can see its pancake mix


open the milk carton


 measure the 3/4 of a cup


 measure the tablespoon of cooking oil


break an egg


get the yolk falling
 he said


add the milk, oil and egg


 whisk to get the lumps out


uh oh forgot to get the griddle down
get the griddle and turn the burner on low


while I was doing that 
he was whisking
I looked over 
and 
went 
WHA?

well, 
it seems
 Toonman
 did not read
 all
 the instructions
 on the back of the box 
he 
skipped
 the first step:
 1 cup dry measure pancake mix


later
 after
 that 
was thrown out
( if I a muffin tray/pan we could have made muffins or even biscuits but instead it ended up in the trash)
 I pointed out
 the icon of a
 CUP
 on the back of the box


he said
 he thought
 that
 was for the milk

he still owes me a pancake dinner

oh 
I wish I had video taped it


none of these photos are signed
