Don’t even see the chocolate chips, do you? I’ve gotten pretty good of getting them completely embedded so when I’m faced with the fact that I’m eating pancakes for lunch it is not compounded by the other fact that they’re crammed with as much chocolate as possible.
Rationalization still kicks in to assist denial. Sure, it’s chocolate, but these are super-grainy pancakes. Sure, it’s chocolate, but I’m not using any “butter” or maple syrup. Sure, it’s chocolate, but it’s got a high cocoa content so it’s actually good for me.
So is it dessert or lunch (or breakfast)? Am I only having these identity issues because I’m watching Hedwig and the Angry Inch?
