breakfast of champions
Coffee with milk. Milk from a can. Milk from a cow processed by man and packed in a can. A fried egg. Some days served runny and some days served dry. A few pieces of bread. Chewy little buns. Break open one with a fork and make a little runny egg sandwich. Dunk and wipe up the yolk with the rest.
Sit, watch and listen to the buzz. Street-level pundits and their take on politics. Sports fans and their predictions. Engineers and their plans. Dreamers and their lottery tickets. Clutch-bagged folks and their transactions. Have another cup.
This little meal costs about 30 pesos, less than a dollar, a third of what you pay for in a coffee chain.
