Uh-oh. There's Something Floating In My Coffee!

I got myself a bowl of Cheerios and a cup of java with cream and sugar this morning at about 8 a.m. and sat down to write today's post. It is now 6:10 p.m. and I am just now getting around to writing it, dang it! Now I have to recap my thoughts in my head before playing them out as I would have this morning when it was fresh and hope it doesn't taste like day old bread. Nevertheless, it is sustenance.

I had my spoon in my Honey Nut Cheerios and had not yet stirred my coffee, so I used my cereal spoon for the task. I didn't check the spoon before thrusting it into the coffee and when I looked down to take a sip of the coffee, there were two Cheerios floating in the blessed java. At first, I was grossed out, thinking, "Oh crap, there are Cheerios in my coffee!" Determined to make the best of it because the word "cheer" is in the name, after all, I decided to eat the little floating circles. Hmmm, coffee flavored Cheerios! I immediately applauded myself for coming up with a new idea. Coffee flavored cereal! Cheerios has a lot of flavors, why not coffee flavored ones to go with your latte?

I know that some of you are just getting to know me, so understand that I love coffee. I love coffee with Creme Brulee creamer. I love lattes. I love coffee flavored candies, ice cream, and those Little Debbie coffee cakes. I love, love, love anything coffee to the yumpth degree! And yes, I just made that word up and I love it too.

I really think it is a great idea. If there is a coffee flavored cereal out there, I don't know of it, so enlighten me if one exists and I'll gladly give it a review. I love to talk about new products and things I try. I've often thought I could be a great idea generator. My mind formulates ideas all day long like a firestorm. If only I had the immense money, power, and motivation to make them all come to fruition... why, I'd be the next Ron Popeil! However, I've yet to find that job description in the local newspaper's help wanted section:

WANTED: Someone to come up with all kinds of cool ideas about anything and everything. Pays really unbelievably well. Benefits out the wazoo.  No education requirements. You can be dumber than a box of rocks as long as you can come up with killer ideas every now and then. Cindy Brown, if you're reading this ad, you're the only candidate we will consider.

As I said, that is an unlikely scenario, so I will just keep writing this blog and telling all of you about my ideas and hopefully the right executive will read my blog and pay me umpteen hundred-thousand dollars for my cool ideas. Until then... I am just bloggin' along through life, hoping you'll enjoy the ride along with me.

  3. Kelly, as I was writing the post and thinking of coffee flavored things I could invent, I thought of coffee flavored chewing gum and decided that although I also love "everything" coffee, there might be a line I'd have to draw, LOL!

    Amy, thank you for the mad props and much love! I need the street cred.

  5. I love how you discovered the concept of coffee-flavored cereal. I'm not a big coffee fan (Diet Coke is more my thing) but I do enjoy coffee flavored ice cream and Nips (coffee candy drops) now and then. I also like Cheerios so maybe coffee Cheerios would be just the thing! ;)

  6. Uh-oh, you may be on to something here. I would really buy coffee flavored Cheerios! I love the chocolate flavored ones, so why not combine them and make "mocha latte" flavored Cheerios!

  7. Umm, your not the only one who has thought of Coffee-Flavored Cheerios. But, your way of figuring it out was interesting. I thought of it when i was just eting my cheerios! I tasted a coffee tint to them for some reason. Maybe it was just my Morning mouth.But it did get me thinking Coffee-Flavored Cheerios. But there are various flavors of coffee, so would they use black, vanilla? I guess they would just have to make one kind for every type of coffee!

    1. Actually, most comments are from those I promote my blog to and my followers. I am trying to gain readership, though, so I am all for random search word commenters joining in on the fun as well :0)
