The One with Excessive Amounts of Cereal

Today I calculated that I've eaten over 17,000 bowls of cereal in my life.

Here's the math: I've eaten about 2 bowls of cereal a day (one for breakfast, one for dessert after dinner), every day of the year (365 days/year), since I was 2 years old (so for 24 years now).

24 x 2 x 365 = 17,520.

What can I say except I love cereal?

Ha! I'm pretty sure I've eaten maybe 100 bowls of cereal in my life. I am not a fan.

Carolyn Taylor said...

That sounds about right. You are made out of Cap'n Crunch. That's all I ate during my pregnancy with you!

This made me laugh! That's the best blog post - one I bet nobody expected to read when they came here - too fuuny! That's a whole lot of cereal you've eaten there! My brother-in-law eats two peanut butter and jelly sandwiches everyday since he was a kid and one is after dinner for his dessert.

I could live on cereal! I don't trust people who don't like cereal :0)

dude. Cereal is my crack. When I went on Weight Watchers a couple years ago, it was by far the hardest thing to give up. I still struggle with it... my body just craves 2 bowls a day!

Funny that when we buy Oh's, we have to buy everyone in the family their own box and label it with a sharpie.

Savannah O'Gwynn said...

I love how many bowls of cereal you have eaten! And you have one every night for dessert??? Great idea!!!!!!! I have to share--when I went to the grocery store this past week, there was a sale on Lucky Charms (BOGO). So I got three sets. The lady rung me up and charged me for all six. So I had to get six more to get the BOGO free deal. Now we have 12 boxes in our house!!! LOL!

Dassow Mommy said...

Thanks for the list. I'm a little partial to Fruit and Yogurt Special K. Are there any cereal bars left in L.A.? You should try one if there are.

JenniferSanborn said...

LOL!! :) Love your cereal top ten. :)

Cin Cin said...

Oh.My.Gosh.

That is too funny. Jeremy would eat cereal for breakfast, lunch and dinner if I let him. LOL.

Have you had Cracklin Oat Bran yet? Jeremy loves a lot of the same cereals you do, so I'm curious to see if you'd like his #1 fave. :-)

Also... do you think you've tried every cereal out there (the main ones...)? Just curious...
