this morning i grabbed a box of mini oatmeal cookies, which sit next to the cheerios on my counter, and poured them into a bowl. ready to go ahead and eat them for breakfast. it was only when i had the milk hovering over the bowl that i realized, hmm something is wrong here.
yet, it was like a delayed reaction. i looked at the bowl, then at the cheerios. back the bowl. then the most prolonged d’oh escaped my lips.
i set the milk down and began pouring the cookies back into the box. i did, however, contemplate pouring the milk over the cookies. i mean, that’d just be one step away from oatmeal, really. and even though i don’t like oatmeal, i’m sure cookie-like oatmeal would taste different. and they were organic cookies. that had to count for something.
i’m really wondering if i need to start introducing caffeine into my morning routine. do you have caffeine in the morning? can you function without it?
sidenote: thank-you for participating in the “fill in the blanks” post. it was really interesting to see how each person interpreted the line before. i’ll leave it open and check in periodically, to see if anything has been added.
