Secret Cheerios

I generally have 8-10 boxes of cereal in the house. There are only really three different kinds, but I stockpile them. I cannot really live without all three.

1. Great Grains Crunchy Pecan - not quite discontinued, I am only able to find it online now, never in stores. I buy it in cases. There is a store version that you can find which has less pecans and includes raisins and dates. I find it insulting.

2. Reese's Puffs - the surprisingly vegan ultimate dessert cereal. When I was in the early stages of this love affair, I briefly thought that it might be better to get Cocoa Puffs and mix them with Peanut Butter Captain Crunch. I was wrong; it's too high-contrast. The people of Reese's know what they're doing with their chocolate-like and peanut-butter-like substances.

3. Cheerios - original flavor, no stupid shit on it. When I was a child I ate so much of this that we got swag. I still have a monogrammed Cheerios duffel bag that I used to use to ferry my tiny clothing between my divorced parents' houses.

Tonight as I was preparing for my usual elevensies meal of cereal, I was heartbroken to find that I had less than a bowl of Cheerios left. I knew I was running out, I've known all week, and I just kept forgetting to get more.

And then I thought to check the hall closet, where I sometimes hoard excess cereal. AND I HAD MORE CHEERIOS.

Guys I'm so excited.
