Looking Forward To Monday

I rarely buy new foods in the grocery store. I know what I like and I make a list, get in, fill the cart and get out as quickly as possible. The whole ordeal of pushing a cart around, maneuvering in and out of small aisles, dodging people and children, loading up the car, unloading the car, and putting everything away makes me very tired. Then I take a look at the bill and I'm tired and depressed.

I had to go pick up some dog food after work and, of course, there were a few other things that I needed so that I don't have to go shopping again soon. One of those things was food for breakfast at work. I was eating peanut butter toast, then I switched to bagels and cream cheese. I really shouldn't eat bagels and cream cheese every day so I looked at the cereal aisle. My staple cereal is Cheerios. I eat them plain, no milk, at my desk. Sometimes I eat granola, sometimes I try a different cereal like Corn Bran. Today I looked at the Cheerios and none of them were on sale. I was about to move on when something else caught my eye...Chocolate Cheerios. And they were on sale because they are new.

Now I'm not usually the first person to try a new product but this one is mixing two things I like a lot. I haven't tried them yet. I'm going to save them for work so that I have something special to look forward too. They probably aren't as good as I am imagining...I'm thinking tiny chocolate donuts. But I have to admit that I was sucked in my their marketing and they got my $2.50. Now I have a reason to look forward to Monday.

There was an old Saturday Night Live/John Belushi skit about a little chocolate donuts breakfast cereal. It made him a world class athlete or something like that, aort of like Wheaties. That is the first thing I thought of when I saw the picture.

Hmm, maybe I can be an Olympic athlete afterall.

Just to make sure, he smoked cigarettes in the commercial too.

Wow, chocolate Cheerios! They don't have them here yet in Canada. You'll have to let all of us know how they stack up!

Lucky girl: you have motivation to look forward to both Monday and Saturday.

I saw those at Walmart yesterday, all piled up right at the front door. They looked good!
