Or the breakfast of champions, depending on how you look at it! 😉

What did you have for breakfast this morning? Please don’t say nothing!

Six years ago (or more), if you had asked me what I ate for breakfast the answer would vary greatly. One day it might be absolutely nothing but coffee; another day 2-3 egg McMuffin sandwiches at McDonald’s; and on another perhaps a Starbucks Venti Latte with a couple of slices of coffee cake and a muffin.

After secretly ranking the items,  everyone else bets on where the items will fall within the ranking for that individual. My family used to play this game and my favorite category to both rank for myself and guess for other people was food. No surprise, right?! Read more
