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.
