I absolutely detest soggy cereal. There is just something about the texture of gooed up whole grains in milk that just makes me gag. This is the reason I do not like flaky cereals. I am afraid of the flakes. Within seconds they turn into a gooey mass of carbohydrates, hell-bent on torturing my gag reflexes. I do not like to gag. Also, I do not like to puke, but that is a story for another day.
Today I am thinking about cereal. Perhaps it is because I am hungry at this very moment and wishing upon a star that I could have some milk in the fridge for which to have Cracklin' Oat Bran. I looooove Cracklin' Oat Bran. The Cracklin' Oat Bran is the perfect cereal because, you see, even when it has been sitting in milk for minutes, it is still crunchy. Crunchy! Yes, it looks like dog food and has more fiber than you can shake a stick at (and why wouldn't you?), but it is deliciously sweet and holds it's crunch. But, sadly, at $4 a (small) box, it is a breakfast luxury and never lasts more than a day or two in my pantry. (It would be a sin to have just one bowl)
So tell me, are you afraid of the flakes too? Or are you my friend Crystal who will forever live in infamy because she loves soggy cereal?
