A while back, I explained that I've given up bagels, for many health-related reasons. Breakfast used to be so easy. I never had to figure out what I was going to eat.
There's a hot cereal I used to like called Ralston. It was a wheat cereal that tasted good with sugar and milk, but I can't find it anywhere now. So I bought something called Wheatena. That's right, Wheatena. It sounds like some weird food name from the 1950s or something. Or a joke. Or, more accurately, as it turns out, something that tastes really bad.
I have been a little afraid of the Wheatena since I bought it, but for some reason I got really sick to my stomach last night and was still a little queasy when I woke up. I figured, now's as good a time as any! Stomach can't feel worse.
So I cook it up. And I noticed, with some displeasure, that it looks a bit like boiling diarrhea.
After about 5 minutes, I put it in my bowl. I'm extra scared now, because it smells weird. I can't describe the smell, but it smelled kind of burned from the very beginning, but not because I burned it.
Yep, I think this is going to need a LOT of sugar.
As it turns out, all the sugar in the world ain't gonna make this taste good. It feels very gritty in my mouth and tastes like burnt, soggy, hot bread crumbs. Plain and simple, it's awful. Just awful. So I'm taking it to my grandma tonight.
