Coming out.

It's apparently national pancake day today, and I just found out. Did you already know?
I have a pretty big secret to tell you, and it will upset you, as you've probably personally made me pancakes before, because everyone has, because I'm from new england, where everyone eats pancakes all the time, and practically wears them as hats and uses maple syrup as face wash.
But guess what?
I don't really like pancakes.
I could take them or leave them.
I'm so sorry to tell you this.
Your pancakes were really good, I swear. And I ate them didn't I? They were real well made... It's not you, it's me.
I really enjoy the first bite, but after that, they make me feel kinda sick and heavy like there's a brick in my stomach...and because I appreciate when someone makes me food (and because I will eat pretty much anything someone puts in front of me), I will always be too polite not to eat them so don't worry- they won't be wasted...
but now you know.
And now it's off my chest.
and I'm sorry that now you're worrying about all the pancakes you've pushed on me and you're probably going to say something about it next time you see me, and make this all awkward for both of us, aren't you?
it's okay. we'll get through this. it's all about support.

Happy National Pancake Day to you! Hope you get a good one, and that your day is full of happiness & rainbows just like this etsy front page.

"As a comedian, you have to start the show strong and you have to end the show strong. Those are the two key elements. You can't be like pancakes. You're all happy at first, but then by the end, you're sick of 'em."
