The Cupboard is Always Bare

Backstory: My mother is notorious for never having any edible food in her house. We’re not sure how she survives.

Me: i’ll come over but i bet you don’t even have anything for breakfast
Mom: I do too! I have lots of food!
Me: Yeah?
Mom: I have an egg
Mom: I have brownies!
Me: Really? I’ll eat brownies for breakfast no prob
Mom: Oh, they’re not made, it’s a mix.
Mom: And it calls for two eggs, oops. Maybe you should eat before you get here.
Me: I have no idea how I lived to adulthood in your care.

      Its so good to know that my mother isn’t the only one like this! Though I doubt my mother would have an egg or brownie mix. :) How DO they survive?!

      I had a friend at college who thought the cafeteria food was the best thing she’d ever eaten…
