What's the Word Wednesday - Waffle (Sorry I'm Late)

Storee was so wrapped up in writing her next book What's the Word Wednesday slipped right by her. She invites you to share some waffles with her on this Thursday to make up for her tardiness.

This week's word is: Waffle

waffle (WAH fuhl) (noun)
1. A crisp cake with a pattern of deep squares on both sides that is made by cooking batter in a special device called a waffle iron: "Each member of the family had a waffle for breakfast this morning."

2. An informal British term meaning foolish or dull talk or writing that continues for a long time: "The speech was a load of waffle about politics."
waffle (WAH fuhl) (verb)
To be unable or unwilling to make a clear decision about what to do: "Every time Paul spoke, it was to waffle from one point of view to another one."
Having breakfast with some people is always interesting. So often someone will waffle back and forth between whether to have pancakes for breakfast or to have a waffle with syrup, while maintaining a dull waffle about the weather.

Write a story and include a waffle. Noun or Verb - the choice is yours.
