The Waffle Blues

Posted on May 31st, 2012 in Stories

When I woke up this morning,

I had a craving,

A yearning and a needin’ for crispy squares,

I had the waffle blues.

So I fired up the iron,

Cracked the eggs,

Grabbed my blue corn waffle mix,

And got to cooking.

Well, that iron started sizzling,

I started drooling,

Smells of sweet vanilla,

It was heaven on a skillet, I swear.

That little orange light blinked,

And I whipped open that lid,

plopped my blue corn waffle on a plate,

and started chewing before the butter had melted.

I chewed…

And chewed…

And chewed some more…

Until tears splattered my syrup.

Oh the agony!

Oh the injustice!

Oh the pain!

For these waffles were not waffly at all,

They were just plain.

There was no crisp sweetness,

No syrup soaked goodness,

No blue corn tastiness,

No deliciousness of any sort.

So here I sit,

With a cold waffle iron,

And a plate of blue waffles,

That not even Bear would touch.

I got the blues,

the blue corn waffle blues.

I’ll sit here with my syrup,

And sing the blues all night long…

I got the waffle blues.


Stay tuned, Invisible Friends!  We have a  new Friday Five mañana!

    I have to have syrup on my waffles. These look really yummy!

    I’m confused. What happened? Was it that the blue tortilla mix sucked or the waffle iron wasn’t warm? It sounds like the batter was too dense to get that fluffy lightness inside and the crisp coating outside.
