A while back I wrote about my obsessive compulsive disorders. In a recent conversation with a coworker, I discovered there is something else that I am obsessive compulsive about that I failed to mention in my previous post. You see, there is a very specific way that is the only correct way to eat Frosted Mini Wheats. I only bring this up because it is so important. There may be people out there who are doing it incorrectly. I consider this blog post to be somewhat of a public service announcement.
First, it's important to note that although Frosted Mini Wheats are delicious, Frosted Mini Spooners from Malt-O-Meal are actually more delicious.
Second, it's important to put in enough milk to submerge the bottom mini spooners but not fill the whole bowl. Too much milk will cause some of the little guys to get soggy. Not enough will not allow them to get properly soft.
The next step is the most important. This is where my coworker (Let's call him Ben, since that's his name) disagreed with me. It's very important that you eat the spooners that are submerged in the milk first. (otherwise they could go soggy) As you select each one, you must turn it so that the frosted side is down before you scoop it up in your spoon. This has a dual purpose. First, it makes sure that the frosting gets submerged fully in the milk, so that you can achieve desired softness. Second, when you place it in your mouth the softened frosting is laying directly on your tongue. This maximizes the joy that you will feel. Of course, other spooners will then fall in the milk to replace the ones you eat. This is the desired result.
Ben disagreed. He felt that the frosting side should always be up. He is a believer in a crunchier frosting. Ben's usually a pretty smart guy. I figured if he had gone astray on this issue, there might be others out there with this same problem. That's why I share this wisdom with you.
The final step is that you may need to pour more milk in, since you didn't fill the bowl fully. Don't be concerned by this. You'll generally need to pour one more time. It may take some time to learn how to do your second pouring such that it lasts all the way to the end but doesn't leave any leftover.
In order to facilitate the world eating Mini Wheats/Spooners properly, my brilliant mind created a fabulous idea. (Ben may want to interject that this brilliant invention was his idea, but I think he would realize that it was his exposure to my brilliant mind that allowed him to come up with the idea.) What if there was a contraption that you could put milk and Mini Spooners into and it would serve up each one properly softened by milk, but it could store them seperate so as to never allow sogginess.
Whoever among you wishes to implement this idea, I will accept your donation of one million dollars even though the idea is worth much more.
