i was walking through k-roger yesterday, picking up a few things, when something caught my eye. something from my childhood - cream of wheat. i didn't know they still made cream of wheat, and i got all excited! i remembered eating it, all warm with sticky, melted pools of brown sugar & milk, and couldn't resist - i bought the big box! (EW - MY CAT JUST FARTED BESIDE ME....GACK!) i had cream of wheat for lunch yesterday, and it was just like i recalled - brown sugary goodness, warm and thick and comforting. and wikipedia just told me it's been around since 1893! i am eating a piece of history, people!

Thank you for including all details of your blogging experience this morning. I was wondering, as I read, what aromas might be passing you by. Somehow the subliminal messaging decreased my desire for cream of wheat though...

i normally wouldn't have included such an interjection, but it wasn't just a fart - it was a galactic, supernova of a smell!! EWWWWWW. i couldn't keep silent!

Another erudite online author reduced to fart jokes.

Tragedy.
