You've seen the show, Man vs. Food, right? It's on the Travel Channel - you MUST watch it - on an empty stomach or not because either way, at the end of the show you really won't feel like eating. Man vs. Food is one of The Boy's favorites - and when he saw that Adam Richman had been to Seattle to take on Beth's Cafe's TRIPLE BYPASS 12 EGG OMELETTE , he had to try to beat him. Adam quit with two bites left...TWO BITES!!! And if you saw that show you saw Adam grimacing in the most uncomfortable way - he looked like he was going to hurl at any moment and probably wished he could! The boy was full of bravado on his way to Beth's (7311 Aurora Avenue North, Seattle) thinking 12 eggs with double Swiss cheese, double American cheese, ham, bacon and sausage, along with a side of hashbrowns, and toast would be a piece of cake - albeit a very large piece of cake - but cake nonetheless.
Here's a cell-phone pic of the beast/omlette before The Boy dug in...please join me in a rousing chorus of Let's Hear It For the Boy! Let's Hear It For The Man! Let's Hear It For The Babe!
Okay - that's enough - before the song would end The Boy had met his match...he quit after eating only HALF of the omlette...he looked a bit bloated, somewhat sickly, and before issuing a NO PICTURES order he grunted slightly and burped in a most unpleasing manner!The Boy waddled back to the car - sitting silently except for the occasional moan, on the way home - vowing not to eat another morsel for at least two days! It was great fun to watch...definitely worth the $19.50 price tag...oh, Beth's does have regular-sized breakfasts and they're worth the trip, no matter how far you have to drive.
