Anyway, if he didn't remember, it would have been nice to know ahead of time (like you can always know when somebody's going to forget something in the future</sarcasm>), because then we could have used this time to go to the store and get milk, since we ran out this morning. But actually I don't mean that and I only brought it up to lead into my next comment, which is that we still have plenty of chocolate milk, and while we have always wondered about the possibilities of trying it on cereal, we've never been able to bring ourselves to actually do it. Being out of regular milk is the perfect excuse! The sad thing is that I think the chocolate might go better with Frosted Mini Wheats (our normal cereal of choice) than Corn Chex (what we have now that we're out of Frosted Mini Wheats). Maybe when we get more Frosted Mini Wheats, we'll try them with the chocolate milk again, despite the fact that we'll also have bought regular milk.
I would also like to point out that for some reason the chocolate milk was only available in 1%. What is up with that, I ask you. At least it's not skim.
Oh right! I was going to mention the strange mystery that occurred last night. We sat down to eat some honey nut Chex Mix (only it's actually just honey Chex Mix since they took out the nut clusters, which is sad because they were the best part. but the spirally thingies are really good too, so what they should really do is lose the regular bread stick thingies, keep the spirally ones, and give us our nut clusters back. I know people have nut allergies, but then why would they be buying honey nut Chex Mix to begin with?)
Anyway (getting back after a twenty minute break where our home teacher actually showed up), we sat down to eat Chex Mix and watch Star Trek: The Next Generation. Suddenly! Athena pulled a giant clump out of the bag! It was about three inches in diameter (I think, but Athena remembers it being smaller than I remember it), and it appeared to be made out of honey and salt. She squished it to see if there was any Chex Mix inside, but it just fell apart! That's all there was! It was kind of scary, actually, but we ate it anyway. Or we ate as much of it as could reasonably go with the Chex Mix we were eating (or maybe a lot more than that, but certainly not the whole thing, my goodness).
And that wasn't much of a story but it was still very strange.
Today I'm thankful for not showing any signs of poisoning from the strange honey-salt clump, the idea of cereal and chocolate milk, our home teacher showing up, finally finding those prize pots that had been eluding us, and getting to finish snack time before our home teacher got here.
