A Popcorn Bowl Full of Cereal

When I was seven (why do all of my stories happen at that age?), my brother and I couldn't decide which little box of cereal to eat. So we did what any normal seven and four year old would do. We poured all ten boxes into a big popcorn bowl and added over a half gallon of milk.

At first we dug in, shoving spoonful after spoonful into our mouths. But we got full very quickly. Then my dad came into the kitchen.

He took one look at our enormous bowl still filled with cereal and wasted milk and said, "You're both going to finish that bowl."

I immediately burst into tears...because of the Elvis thing...
