Breakfast or Shall We Say World Destruction!?

Sydney Brown, Staff writer

We are living in a society today where our future greatly depends on the youth we are currently educating.  I have taken it upon myself to draw the public’s attention toward the devastating lesson we have implemented on the newer generations:


Cereal is the staple breakfast item for most people from a young age; It is therefore important that we pay attention to the order in which we undergo our cereal bowl preparation. From the personal research I have done, it is extremely obvious that the people of the present were taught incorrectly.


The truth of the matter is that the milk should always go into the bowl before the cereal.

This is simply the way it must be. There are plenty of reasons that this is the right way to prepare cereal, and here are just a couple:


As milk enters the bowl first, it is an amount determined by the consumer. With this being so, it is apparent that the consumer is a person who takes control seriously and cares about the order of things. This controlling is not a negative trait, it is a learned manner that allows for no mistakes. If you were to think about it, a boss, as well as anyone in any high level of authority, must being controlling in order to perform their job properly. Anyone with important business must have the discipline to stay on task as well as keep others on task as well. By teaching the younger generation to pour their milk before their cereal we can instill this rule before they hit the age of no return.


Secondly, when the cereal is put in last it prevents the meal from becoming soggy, because you can choose to use a small amount of dairy product. This may not seem to be an issue for those who enjoy their cereal soft, but the purpose of this point is all the same. Some believe that by caring about what we are consuming we are doing more to protect our well-being. If we go based off of this thinking, the people who put more care into their preferences care more for the health and happiness of themselves and possibly of others as well.


I wanted to address this matter with one of my peers, so I decided to talk to Brant Penrod who had a lot to say about the subject. When I told him about the proper way to prepare cereal he exclaimed, “ Well, that’s just because you’re a weirdo.You’re definitely wrong.  I’ve even seen you eat dry cereal before.” After speaking to him, I realized that we would just have to agree to disagree on the debate.


There’s not much else I can say to sway the public’s opinion, but if you are reading this please note that our world is heading in a dark direction due to this debacle. Imagine a time when the clouds roll across the sky competing with the light, only to leave us in darkness. People would frantically run about, and disregard all authority.  We would judge each other and ourselves harshly due to the lack of love, and time would spin in an overwhelmingly fast rate towards destruction.


All I ask of you, as a citizen of this corrupt and crumbling society, please do your part to make this world a better place.
