This is the day that I should be re-capping what an awesome, fun-filled weekend it was with family & friends. But, as per usual, I have not uploaded my pictures yet.
(The good news is I actually have pictures to upload, though! I got my camera back on the weekend! Woo hoo! Thank you, Lynn!!)
Anyways. So I’ll save the photo dump for tomorrow, I guess, and instead, I’ll tell you about cereal. And how much I hate it.
I really really really hate cereal.
ew. ew. gag. puke.
I stop in at my mom’s place every morning on my way to work. People laugh & mock me for this, saying, “Your mom still makes you breakfast!” Um, no. I do not have a lavish spread of bacon and eggs and pancakes every morning, you donkeys. It’s usually a bowl of Cheerios or a piece of toast. More often the bowl of Cheerios. So relax.
My mom does make me eat breakfast though. When left to my own devices, I usually skip it. She insists. Most important meal of the day, you know! and all that crap.
Cereal makes me want to barf. This morning when I walked in and saw it sitting there, I had to fight the urge to cringe. And then I sat down and started shoveling it in as quickly as I could without gagging, just so that it would be over.
“Mom. I hate cereal.”
“Me too. It takes me half an hour to eat it because I dislike it so much.”
So there. My mom and I both hate cereal, but our tactics for dealing with it are complete opposites. I slam it down as fast as physically possible without vomiting it back up, while she drags it out as long as physically possible because she hates eating it so much.
I know people who love cereal. They’ll eat it for supper. Some people don’t even buy it because they’d eat it all if they have it in the house.
To those people I say…I don’t get it. I just don’t get it.
Now. For the record, I think I would be more willing to eat it if it were Froot Loops or Lucky Charms. Those are definitely much more fun cereals. If you toss in some bright colours and marshmallows and sugar, I’m down.
But I’m stuck with the somewhat healthy crap. (I find Cheerios the most tolerable of the healthy crap).
Oh, and have I mentioned I hate milk? I guess that doesn’t help either.
So there. I hate it cereal.
Happy frigging Monday.
