Cinnamon Roll French Toast
Within the past few years I have developed this weird physical reaction to pain. I start to lose all control over my body. Tunnel vision sets in and that feeling you get right before passing out overcomes me.
When I stub my toe, when I do a difficult workout, when my cat scratches me. It can be the smallest little pain that will trigger me. And not just to experiencing pain but also being around someone else who is in pain or just hearing about something painful.
I have only gotten to point of actually passing out a handful of times, but still, it makes me feel like a real wimp.
I relate it to a similar reaction a lot of people have to seeing blood. Some sort of defense mechanism the body is having that really doesn’t make sense.
And even though I can’t control it, I am embarrassed by it. I try to hide it when it starts happening because I don’t want anyone to know. It feels like a sign of weakness.
But lately I have come to accept that it isn’t really a sign of weakness, it is simply one of my “quirks.” I actually learned this from a client I serve at my job.
We all have quirks that are beyond our control. And instead of judging myself for these things, it seems more productive to just accept them as a unique part of me. I’m working on it. It will take time.
But you know what doesn’t involve pain or passing out…? Cinnamon rolls, french toast, and cinnamon roll french toast. My husband was a happy man this morning. And I’ll admit, I was pretty happy about it too though his morning sweet tooth is a bit bigger than mine.
I will also admit I wasn’t a true baker with these. I used store bought cinnamon rolls from the can (gasp!), but please feel free to use your favorite cinnamon roll recipe! Especially if you planned ahead and were more patient than me this morning!

Cinnamon roll….FRENCH TOAST!? Holy Cow.
And I totally have like a bjillion quirks of such a nature, particularly from running…I hear ya
This is what we need – an insight to make evoyrene think
Oh you have won my teenagers heart with this recipe. I can smell the cinnamon all the way in Hong Kong. Yum!
We all have our little quirks. I get all psycho around bees. I hate them; they scare me. I run around, flailing my arms like a wild woman.
These cinnamon rolls look down right delicious!
I have this same quirk! I didn’t always but sometime around my preteen/middle school years it started and carried on straight through to now. I wondered if I would faint during labor with my daughter 2 yrs ago, I made it through though. I have not fainted since but have come close a couple times. I even managed to not faint at the dentist a couple weeks ago. It’s definitely a bit of a system overload in reaction to adrenaline or something like that but it’s not particularly useful and I also find it a bit embarrassing.
As for the cinnamon rolls, this sounds so good and next time I make them I’m going to give this a go 🙂
A tisket a tasket someone wants their ass kicked and their tibula broken. Ever see mr.hands?
