My sweet bride loves oatmeal, but doesn't like to make it herself unless it's instant on the way out the door. Sunday mornings she always gets up before me, so Saturday night I prepared her a special breakfast. When she came to wake me on Sunday morning, she whispered into my ear what every man wants to hear his woman say in bed- "You're so good!" Of course she had oatmeal breath as she had just finished her surprise breakfast......
