Hungry Jack syrup bottle cap. Submitted by Kristi DC.

My friend Kristi sent this to the Smile! Facebook page yesterday. “We made French Toast for dinner,” she wrote, “and we were surprised to find this under the cap of the Hungry Jack syrup! Thought about you and had my husband take a picture.”

There’s something about breakfast that makes a person happy, isn’t there? Yesterday morning my brother launched a long conversation about breakfast with a Facebook post about how happy pancakes make him, and then maybe seven hours later Kristi and her family are sitting down to French toast.

Thanks for the smiley, Kristi! Hope you enjoyed your syrup! 🙂

Syrup smiley on a pancake. Photo taken February 2011.

I really love pancakes. They make me think of childhood, my father at the griddle, my mother at the dining table, the smell of the batter mixing with the aroma of scrambled eggs, orange juice, and rich coffee, cartoons on the television and me, my sister, and my brother sprawled in the living room.

Pancakes make me happy.
