question of the day:

sometimes i come home from the casino between 5-7am, particularly if i don't get there until after 10pm. When that happens, i'll sometimes hit up McDonalds because the one thing that i can tolerate from McDonalds is their breakfast biscuits.

today mcdonalds was unexpectedly closed due to some sort of issue, so i decided to hit up walgreens instead and get something else. they had some microwaveable breakfast biscuits which i theorized couldn't be much worse for me than what McDonalds puts out, so i grabbed one and took it to the checkout counter.

The service clerk was feeling chatty and asked me, "is this breakfast or dinner?" Instinctively i said, "breakfast" and then realized that what he was actually asking was "is this a late night meal before i go to sleep, or is this my first meal after having just woken up?"

and that's the question of the day. I eat that stuff after a late night at the casino around the typical time of "breakfast", but after that i go to sleep. when i wake up, it's usually afternoon, so the next meal that i have is typically more "lunch" like (whenever it happens to be). So would you consider the meal that i'm eating actually "breakfast"?

I name meals by a combination of time of day and content. So that would be breakfast to me.

usually nothing. occasionally brunch replaces lunch with some sort of omelette.

i would call your "lunch" meal "breakfast," just because by definition/semantics, breakfast is what you eat after you have slept for some period of time, thus "break"ing that "fast" that occurs while you are sleeping.

one of my favorite breakfasts in college was the extra-special days when i had nothing to do later in the afternoon, didn't eat anything immediately upon waking, and went to sakura around noon-1pm to eat yakisoba and drink extraordinarily cheap pitchers of beer. first meal of the day? still totally breakfast. :)

I would call that breakfast because of the time of the day. Even when I get up at noon and I eat food I still consider that lunch and not breakfast.

Good question.

it's a "midnight" snack to me. Or as Taco Bell would market, "fourth meal"
