Why doesn’t Cathy eat breakfast?

Unsolved mysteries of our time (or the 1970s):

Why doesn’t Cathy eat breakfast?

If anyone can tell me what the National Dairy Council wanted us to think, I’d be much obliged. (They have managed to include a dairy product in every kind of food shown!)

In the meantime, I can only suggest: Maybe because it’s not such a great idea after all?

  1. Thank you for writing this, it’s very comforting to know those who miss breakfast will not be Doomed.

    I suffer from a special kind of reason-blindness, where I constantly give in to that vile old Pascal’s enslaver of yore: “Look, if I try this, there is no big harm, no? Just some effort. But if I don’t, just think of the possible consequences!”. I struggled for months with the “at least 8 hours of sleep” rule, and I just recently ditched the eat-breakfast-or-the-earth-will-swallow-you-up maxim. And to think that it was a simple motherhood precept that precipitated my passage on the pernicious path to porculent perdition (:P), “Ondu loTa haalaadaru kudidu hogo..”.

    • ‘Porculent’, heh.

      Starving is bad, but I suspect it’s more important to avoid eating when not hungry.
