I could say I woke up early to write this post before work but the truth is I was already up with food poisoning. We gave up all eating out for Lent this year. The Coronavirus pandemic shutting everything down three weeks later made this a fairly easy Lenten Sacrifice and when Easter arrived, we continued to eat from home. Then, one day I decided we should treat the boys with McDonald’s. They were so, so happy. Too happy for mediocre food that really doesn’t do anything for them other than provide calories. The following week I caved and got Miguel’s Jr. for dinner. Yesterday I agreed to donuts and pizza. Either my husband and I got food poisoning from the pizza or our digestive system waved a white flag all night long.
No matter. This allowed me to be up in time to see Stephenie Meyer is, indeed, releasing Midnight Sun. Meyer says the book will be “decidedly dark.” That hilarious statement, coupled with the cover I believe we are supposed to think is sexy, has me as excited as the boys were when presented with cheap fast food. There will be no nutritional value involved, and at one point there may be regret and pain, but I will savor every last morsel of this unexpected dessert set before me.
