My New Total

As I noted in this post, I had a bit of a conniption fit when I found out that my local grocery stores were no longer stocking my favorite breakfast cereal, Total. I thought for sure that the cereal industry had some sort of conspiracy going against me, since this was the second time they had sandbagged me. How could they persecute me like this?

Well, me being me, I searched far and wide to find a suitable new dry cereal to replace Total. And this was not a cursory search. No indeed. In fact, I could spin quite a yarn about all my trials and tribulations. But I don’t want to bore you to death with the details.

But in the end, I finally managed to find a replacement, albeit a surprising one. It’s actually an old standby, a cereal I used to eat, but haven’t since I was a kid many, many decades ago.

So what cereal fit the bill? None other than “The Breakfast of Champions,” Wheaties.

    Good; now you can heart the “saying” — to “eat your Wheaties.”

      I haven’t seen it on any of the local grocery stores’ shelves for the past three or four weeks and even online places say it’s either out-of-stock or unavailable.

    Now that you are endorsing Wheaties, they should call it the ‘breakfast of writing champions’!
