Neither of you enjoy eating breakfast when you first arise so you’ve built up an appetite prior to going to your favorite strawberry patch. Your spouse has promised a special breakfast for the two of you once you get home and get cleaned up, but reminds you to bring home plenty of berries as some of them will be needed for what is being planned for you.

You and your fellow strawberry picker arrive home, turn over the strawberries and head off to get cleaned up for breakfast now that you’ve both built up an appetite. By the time you return, there they sit – a whopping platter of strawberry vanilla pancakes. You sit down, thinking, This is even better than the early bird getting the worm…, smile, and dig in.
