Chocolate Cheerios are driving me CRAZY!
Have you seen the new Chocolate Cheerios?
I made the mistake of buying a box of them recently, and I have regretted that decision from the get-go. All they've done is create more work for me - when I'm already crazy-busy as it is.
"Oh, Drama Queen....You're being overly-dramatic...how can a box of cereal ruin your life?" you ask.
Well, take a look at the actual cheerios:
And now take a look at my hardwood floors in my kitchen:
If you mix chocolate-colored cereal, with chocolate-colored floors, and then add hungry, in-a-hurry-before-school kids wolfing down breakfast, who somehow manage to always spill 12% of the cereal they eat on the floor, you get lots and lots of little brown cheerios on said floor that are virtually "invisible" to the naked eye...where I find them later when I step on them.
Yesterday, I kid you not - at least five times I would take a step in the kitchen and hear the dreaded, "CRUNCH." I'd look down - and see a smashed-to-smithereens dead cheerio on my floor. ARGH!
Get the broom and sweep it up. Only to kill another one a few minutes later. CRUNCH. ARGH! Get the broom and sweep it up.
The kids finished the box today...and needless to say, for my sanity, I will NOT be buying any more Chocolate Cheerios. I'm going to stick with Fruit Loops, because they, at least, have some color.
