My Life’s Quirks — My Dealings With Cheerios

I’m sure that those of you who have children, grand-children or even younger brothers or sisters will appreciate my situation.  There is one thing that truly makes me question everything I know about the universe.  One thing that makes me wonder if magic is at all possible, or if Toy Story had any truth behind it.  And that one thing is Cheerios.  You know what I mean…

You vacuum and swiffer and sweep until there are no more Cheerios anywhere, then you turn your back and Pow!

The Cheerios are there!

Where do they hide?  What do they do?  That is what this article is all about.

In my ‘snack’ container is where I assume they are — where I assume they stay.  But I am starting to believe they are intelligent and cunning and are able to escape without alarming anyone.  I am thinking they are more than just a snack or breakfast food.  They are very sneaky these Cheerios.  They are very good at hiding.  I often find them in the strangest of places — especially among my kids’ toys.  The only explanation I can think of is that while no one is looking, this is what they are up to:

As I said, they are quite good at hiding…

…but they are sometimes unsuccessful and there are some casualties.

I often wonder how there are so many of them?!  How is it that when I look down I only see two, then look again a couple of seconds later and I see 7!  The only thing that comes to mind is that they must make like bunny rabbits.

They might freak me out and make me question my sanity, but I refuse to let them get to me.  I kind of expect them to create an army one day, to avenge their dead…

But don’t worry about me, I already know how I’ll deal with them…

My dealings with Cheerios.  Just another one of my life’s quirks.

  1. Gotta love those Cheerios! LOL Now that made me laugh and made my day.
