It's 4:47 am and I've been wide awake since 2:45 am, so this post may not make any sense at all. I'm just laying in bed wishing I could sleep, thinking about books, Halloween, and because of that, Franken Berry cereal. Yum!
Do any of you remember Nerds cereal? There was a very short stint when I was pre-teen/junior high (this makes me feel really old) where there was the most amazing breakfast cereal ever! Nerds! They came in a split box, just like the candies do and they were soooooo amazingly, sweet tooth satisfyingly good.
I have drooled over the memories of this cereal and lamented that some trends do not last, but we must adapt. So, it is with utter excitement and a tinge of annoyance that I am looking forward to Halloween this year. And you know why? Not because of the candy or the costumes or the adorable little trick-o-treaters.
Oh no! I am excited because this is the time of the year when I can get Franken Berry breakfast cereal. It is as close as I can come to that long ago treat that I dream of. And the tinge of annoyance is that I can only get it for like 2 months of the year! **shakes fist at the universe and sneaky consumerism**.
I think this year I will win the war against the conspiring universe and those nameless, faceless corporations that are out to deprive me of yummy goodness ten months of the year. I am going to buy like twenty or maybe thirty boxes of Franken Berry cereal, so that I may have it all year, any time I want it! Take that!
