Sometimes it takes a little bit of alcohol for someone to open up.
Then again, a lot of alcohol can lead to discoveries you wish you didn’t make.
I was seeing a former frat boy. Now, there are some frat boys who grow up, there are some that don’t, and then there are those that try to grow up and then revert back to frattiness with large quantities of alcohol.
This particular gentleman had friends in town that weekend, which naturally meant that a lot of drinking would be going on. As the night progressed, he got more and more drunk until he passed out in a stairwell. We managed to get him into a car, where he snored quite happily on the drive home.
Two boys and I managed to carry him and dump him into bed. I crawled in next to him (the guests had taken over the living room and having not served as the DD, I was in no shape to drive home myself) and went to sleep (it’s hard work wrangling drunk boys who don’t think they’re drunk).
The next morning I woke up surprisingly cold. I rolled over to snuggle, only to make an even worse discovery upon realizing that half of the bed was quite damp…
Yup, that’s right, he wet the bed overnight.
Upon realizing that, I immediately jumped out of bed and changed into dry clothes. I wanted a shower as fast as possible, but before driving home I woke up the bedwetter and informed him of what had happened.
His response in an extremely hungover state- “But why do you have to go home and shower?”
Better Morning Surprise Whole Wheat Banana Waffles
- 1 3/4 c whole wheat flour
- 4 tbsp sugar
- 1 tbsp baking powder
- 2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 2 eggs
- 1 3/4 c skim milk
- 1/4 c vegetable oil or melted butter
- 2 overly ripe bananas
- 1 tsp vanilla
- Olive oil spray
- In one bowl, mix together flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. Make a well in the middle.
- In another bowl, mash the bananas. Add the eggs, skim milk, oil, and vanilla and mix until just combined.
- Add liquids to flour mixture and stir until just combined (lumpy is okay!)
- Preheat your waffle maker according to package instructions.
- Spray waffle maker with olive oil (best to use olive oil in a spray pay so your waffle maker lasts longer!).
- Pour 1 to 1 1/2 c mixture onto waffle grids (this varies depending on your waffle maker). Close lid and cook according to instructions (mine says 2-4 minutes and it normally takes 3).
- Open lid when done (don’t open early!) and use a fork to remove.
- Repeat with rest of the waffle batter, spraying waffle maker every so often with more olive oil as needed.
- Serve with maple syrup or fresh fruit.
Makes 14 4-inch waffles (can also use this batter with a Belgian waffle maker)
Note: These freeze very well! To reheat, first thaw for 30 seconds in a microwave then throw in a toaster for best results.
