No Coco Pops for this lass
"I've figured it out!" announced Jorth happily to Galumph. "I have cracked the nut! Solved the dastardly problem! Sorted out the quandary! Used my grey matter to fathom, to discern, to comprehend a solution!"
Galumph looked up from his book on Jørgen Jørgensen. "My darling wife", he said. "What on earth are you talking about?"
Jorth gave him the kind of look that husbands all around the world are familiar with: the look that plainly says "Where have you been? Why aren't you telepathically keeping up?" and answered "Protein, my love. Protein!"
Galumph put down his book with an inward sigh. He knew from long experience that if he didn't give her his full attention right then and there he would get no peace, so gently said "Illuminate me, dear, for I am still none the wiser."
Jorth grinned at him with affection, and said "I've figured out that if I incorporate protein into my breakfast each day, then my energy levels are far better! I can hold out for lunch for much longer, and I don't sink into a heap at 5 o'clock. Just think of all the delicious proteiney things I can eat for breakfast - asparagus and eggs, bean stew, braised lentils on toast, chickpea soups.... oh yeah, I can totally rock some soup for brekkie!" With that she bounded off to find a notepad to jot down some breakfast ideas, and Galumph deemed it safe to delve once more back into his copy of The English Dane.
