Well, it’s National Cereal Day, where by “cereal” of course the implication is that you should go buy and eat some commercial, boxed breakfast cereal, probably sweetened and with a stupid cartoon character on the box. And, OK, I do enjoy a nice serving of Cap’n Crunch once every two or three years, but today, I think I’m going to rebel with some granola (still “cereal”) or, more likely, a hearty bowl of steel cut oats (also “cereal”). Maybe with some extra oat bran for good measure, because cereal.
