A Bedtime Snack With My Brother

It is late at night. I am thinking about my brother.  I wonder if he is eating a bowl of Puffed Wheat Cereal tonight. According to Mapquest his house is 2,382.93 miles away from my house. It would take 38 hours and 42 minutes to drive there. It would cost $598 dollars and 29 cents for gas.

My brother and I, when we both lived on Avenue K in Saskatoon Saskatachewan Canada, always had a bedtime snack.  We each had a bowl of Puffed Wheat Cereal.   We always added too much milk to the cereal.  There was milk left in the bottom of the bowl after we had eaten our cereal.  We added more cereal to the bowl to use up the milk. We poured in too much cereal and then we had to add more milk.  We both used this method to delay our bedtime.

I haven’t lived on Avenue K for over 33 years, and I have not seen my brother in over six years. I live in Pennsylvania now. I have a husband and three children. Every night I have a bedtime snack.  I don’t eat wheat now.  My bedtime snack is Arrowhead Mills Organic Puffed Rice Cereal.  I eat in the kitchen late at night. I pour the cereal into my White FiestaWare Bowl.  I add milk.

I add a little two much milk and end up with milk left in the bowl after I have eaten the cereal.

It seems a waste to have milk left in the bottom of the bowl. The obvious thing to do is to add more  Arrowhead Mills Organic Puffed Rice Cereal  to use up the milk.  I add  too much  cereal  and have to add more milk.







I eat the cereal and end up with milk left in the bottom of the bowl again.







I don’t want to waste the milk.  It seems obvious to add more  cereal to the bowl to use up the milk that is floating in the bottom of my bowl.  I add a little more cereal    to my bowl and I eat it until it is all gone.







I turn out the light and go to bed.

  1. Is there a person in the world who does not eat cereal with milk like that? (If you do not you are really missing out!) Hungry for more cereal now. Yum!

  2. It’s a vicious circle, the ratio of milk and cereal. I also fight that same problem with chips and guacamole.

    • A chip and guacamole fight could go for days. Do you have a good recipe for guacamole?

      • Not really, I just wing it. The best I ever had was in San Antonio on the riverfront. They made it at the table. They squeezed in a bit of lime and orange, mixed in some pico de gallo with the chopped avocado. Yum! Now I want to go back for this ridiculously expensive treat.

  3. I remember & miss those bed time snacks of my children & I smile. 🙂

  4. Six years is a long time.
