This post by Ace on the cereal Kaboom is one of the best blog posts I have ever read. A masterpiece. I had never even heard of that cereal before, but you can just feel the raw emotion in the writing. Now in some way Kaboom haunts me too.
My mom didn’t let us kids eat sugary cereal. She like cared for us and wanted us to be healthy or something. It was awful. Have you ever eaten a plain bowl of Cheerios? It’s bland and tasteless. Might as well have broccoli in milk.
Oh, how I envied the kids you got to eat Cocoa Puffs and Froot Loops. Sure, all those kids are now morbidly obese or dead, but at breakfast they were kings.
