  • My girlfriend thinks I’m a hobbit.

    I’m not particularly short or rotund. It’s not that.

    It’s my eating habits.

    Really, it comes down to one remark I made.

    Though I love doughnuts I made a comment one time when Rebecca Ricks suggested them for breakfast that I would eat them but needed something more substantial first. Doughnuts, I told her, are breakfast dessert.

    Yeah, I called them breakfast dessert.

    She found that amusing. Very amusing.
