I’m a cereal girl. Every single morning I eat cereal. Even Sundays, because pancakes are eaten as a lunch or dinner those days.

THEN I added a whopping dose of cinnamon to bump up the flavor and it was delicious and I felt like a mature adult who gets up in the mornings and makes herself breakfast.
Then I paid my internet bill and decided I want to be sixteen again…
