A Sweet Proposal

A Sweet Proposal

Wednesday, August 24th is National Waffle Day! It also happens to be the day I would have celebrated my twenty-fifth wedding anniversary. After investing so many years in one failed relationship, I am fully evaluating what characteristics I desire in a potential future partner. The more I think about it, the more I realize that a waffle would make a really great spouse. So, in honor of National Waffle Day, I present:

25 Reasons You Should Marry a Waffle

1. No matter how late you stay out, they are still sweet in the morning
2. When you take one to the movies, it doubles as a date and a snack
3. If they go bad, you can throw them out without worrying about whose name is on the lease
4. They don’t get jealous if one morning you decide you’d rather have pancakes
5. You always know exactly what they’re made of
6. They always maintain their shape
7. Even the puffy round ones look good
8. Waffles are available 24/7

    I agree Ginger, because we all know that waffles have no major Eggo issues! Funny post!

    OMG, this is ingenious. They would never waffle on your decisions. You could use them to hold your ice cream! The list is hilariously endless…and btw…look at you in that wedding gown, all prettied up!!!!

    Plus, you can stick ’em in the freezer until you’re in the mood for one. Fun post that puts waffles in an entirely new light!

    What happens if a waffle marries a toaster?

    A very hot relationship.

    I can see what’s in it for you, Ginger, but if you married a waffle, wouldn’t he be a battered spouse?

    And is it right to forcibly mold him into exactly what YOU want him to be? Do you really knead that?
