I have to give Eggo credit because they definitely have a unique promotion for daylight savings time. Eggo is taking the angle of how hard it is for parents and how exhausted we are. On this point I 100% agree.
They ran a survey saying that 54% of parents feel like making breakfast is a chore. I dare say that most of my life feels like a damn chore. I wake up in the morning and I’m exhausted already. I’m cleaning up after the kids left and right. I go, I didn’t need a survey to tell me I was tired. My life is a freaking chore.
So now there is the harsh reminder that spring is moving the clocks ahead which basically means I lose an extra hour of sleep. I was already freaking tired and now I have an hour less of sleep.
I’ll be honest, I never really saw the strong need for Eggo in my life prior to today, but now that I think about the fact that I’ll have one hour less of sleep I am quite happy about throwing an Eggo in a toaster and smiling my way across the day.
See then again I’m digressing into the anger of being exhausted but in reality I have fond memories of Eggo as a child. It was that comfort food that I would just throw in the toaster and run off and eat everyday.
Generally speaking it was the food I could throw into the toaster, run to school and feel a sense of joy with. Maybe then again in hindsight it was a reflection of my parents being exhausted themselves.
That’s a different issue.
Nowadays, I try to make a grown up version and take two Eggos and throw a flat veggie flat sausage right in the middle but that’s a different story for a different day.
So if you’d like to celebrate the loss of sleep for Daylight Savings Time, run to Eggo and win.
