I found a face in my usual breakfast of Cream of Wheat this morning. True story. I prepared the uncooked mixture for the microwave, then tended to fixing a small cup of yogurt while it cooked. The microwave finished and I retrieved the steaming bowl, only to look down and see a face staring back up at me.
Sadly, forces had already been put into motion by the time I noticed this face that would blend it in and send it back to the nether realm from which it came, all before I had a chance to grab the camera.
So who was in my Cream of Wheat? I know some of you are on the edge of your seats right now, hoping against hope that I tell of a vision of God in the CrÃ¨me de BlÃ©. It wasn’t God, it wasn’t even holy, it was simply a laughing face that reminded me of Rich and I’s “Cheveux Heureux” logo for French class back in high school. It was either a reminder to pick up more shampoo at the store, (which I doubt since I just bought some), or it was just a face laughing at me. Which makes sense, since ten seconds previously I had accidentally dumped too much granola into what little was left of the yogurt, causing me to swear and attempt to scoop out as much excess as possible while the dog scrambled for a few pieces that also fell on the floor. That’s definitely worth sending a laughing vision my way to poke fun at my yogurt misfortune. I see how it is. *shakes fist*
In hindsight I shouldn’t have eaten it, and instead should’ve sold it on eBay. Lesson learned: inspect your hot breakfast cereal before stirring. You never know, stranger things have been sold on eBay.
