I love breakfasts! My friend told me once [at the breakfast]: “Why should we “break” “fast”? In the morning we should have our meals slowly, mindfully, enjoying the taste, the smell, the morning, and each other”. And we did:) I’d add that it concerns any other time we take our meals. So, slow down and enjoy it thoroughly:)
p.s. Considering the fact that the word “breakfast” in different languages has different etymology, there are lots of other its interpretations. In case with my friend it was just the common language that we keep our communication through:)
