I preface this short post with the disclaimer, “You aren’t allowed to judge me.”
I went to the store this morning and as I was turning back into our neighborhood, I was waiting to cross over a highway type of road. Coming at me was a McDonald’s big rig, 18 wheeler thing. On the side was just what looked like an Egg McMuffin flying apart, with the term, “BREAK F-A-S-T”
I then thought, Breakfast is the combination of Break and Fast. Whoa.
Is that the origin of the word?? How did I NOT notice this before.
This is one of those moments where I wonder how many things I don’t know or realize. I STILL have to check on the use of affect and effect. And I am pretty sure I used those incorrectly for years since I don’t think I ever used affect. It looks weird.
(Don’t forget about the “Don’t judge me” disclaimer)
In my defense I have always spelled a lot correctly. I have that to hold on to.
I swear, I went to college.
Most times I walk around feeling kinda smart.
Then a McDonald’s truck goes by and I am contemplating my intelligence all over again.

PS. I consulted the Googles and it in fact shows that the origin of Breakfast is from the term, “Breaking the fast.” Well that makes sense now doesn’t it…
