Last night while I was at work I found myself fantasizing about eating a heaving bowl of Corn Flakes.
It really makes sense if you think about it, because A. I was hungry and B. I got a killer deal on a box yesterday at Target. I paid under 3 dollars for a 1 pound, 2 ounce box. That's not bad.
There's no chance that you'll find that kind of a deal at your local grocery stores like Safeway, Kroger, ShopRite or even Foodtown for that matter. At least not without a membership card and coupons out the wazoo.
I didn't really look around to see if they had great deals on other cereals. I like Rice Krispies too, but this one's not about that...
As soon as I'm done writing this post I'm going to make myself a bowl. And don't worry, I'm not going to sex it up with bananas or surround my bowl with orange juice, grapefruit juice or toast. I'm just going to get a bowl and load it up with Corn Flakes and Vitamin D fortified 100% whole milk. Chances are I'll have seconds, but I'll wait and see how my stomach responds to eating the first bowl. I already know how my mouth and heart will respond.
This is how it will go: I'll click on Publish Post, get out of my chair, walk to the kitchen, open box of cereal, pour cereal into bowl, pour milk into bowl, grab a tablespoon, bring bowl back to computer room, let bowl sit for about two or three minutes, and then I'll feast. It's going to be glorious.
Please Note: Captain Corky never uses teaspoons for eating unless it's an emergency, like a picnic or if I'm at somebody else's house and either they don't own silverware or most of it's dirty.
