No Surprise

That was weird. I napped longer than I slept. Or perhaps I'm misinterpreting events. Perhaps I took a nap late last night and then slept this afternoon and evening. The broken clock is undoubtedly at fault. In any case, I'll be having a late dinner for breakfast tonight. At breakfast time this morning I was having Fritos with chive and onion cream cheese and a bottle of beer. It seemed appropriate at the moment, but then five hours earlier I had just woken up from a nap I'd mistaken for sleep, and the clock was lying to me, so I was a bit confused.

But right now a sweet potato is baking in the oven, and it should be ready in an hour or so. I'm debating whether or not I should put sweet butter on it. A couple of weeks ago the market had a sale on butter, and I'd planned to get two pounds, but there was only one pound of salted butter left on the shelf, so I bought it and a pound of sweet butter. I've been wondering ever since what I should put the sweet butter on. Sweet butter is a bit of a mystery to me. If I put it on a sweet potato, will that be too much sweet at once? Or are sweet potatoes called sweet potatoes because they are supposed to have sweet butter on them? Have I been doing it wrong all my life?

I wouldn't be surprised.

But I'm still feeling dopey from that five hour afternoon/evening nap. I woke up in darkness twice today, and waking up in darkness depresses me. Now I keep expecting the sun to come up at any moment, and it won't for almost eleven hours. By that time I'll probably be taking another nap.

Maybe I ought to have made scrambled eggs for dinner. Do eggs go with sweet potatoes?
