I was exhausted. Work took everything out of me and I barely had enough energy to drive home.
But as tired as I was, I decided that I couldn’t go to bed with no dinner. I walked around the kitchen trying to decide what to eat. Meatloaf? No, it needed to be thawed. Spaghetti? Had the sauce, but not enough patience to wait for the noodles to boil. Tuna? Good choice, but my can opener was broken. Yogurt? Nope. I’d still be hungry afterward.
Then it became crystal clear to me what the obvious choice was all along: CEREAL.
