I challenge anyone of my vintage
to not want to buy this cereal
is that the greatest cereal name ever or what...
my Daughter Phantom Steve is a coeliac
which necessitates us making regular trips to the natural foods grocer
or as I like to call it
the hand over your life savings to buy three products grocer
Okay it isn't quite that bad, but it can feel like it sometimes
So on the trip to stock up on rice bread we came across this cereal
which made me immediately want to don a huge white Choose Life T-shirt
and dance down around the store singing Wham at the top of my lungs
which would have embarrassed Phantom mightily
especially as my singing has been compared to putting a squeaky toy through a mincer
which personally I feel is harsh...
surely volume and enthusiasm should count for something
but we succumbed to the purchase and I managed to not sing
until we got into the car
at which time I assaulted poor Phantom's ears with gusto
and now you are all humming it too aren't you
going to be in your head all day now....
On getting home bowls were taken out
milk poured and the cereal was declared "Killer"
which felt all wrong considering the Choose Life associations with the song
but hey it is pretty good for gluten, wheat, and everything else free
so wins all round
and as a bonus I get to sing at 5.30 am as I pour it for her
now that is a great way to start the day...
Another great start to the day today
was turning on the computer and seeing my post for When Artists Cook was up
I am contributing to a series over at Dion Dior
and it has been great fun to be part of
you can see the post here ...
and in a great twist of fate the challenge at
was illustrate a word
and this is close as it has words in it right...
so the day is going swimmingly
turns out starting the day with a song makes everything better... xx
