I did something today (I know there is a full moon), I've only done one other time since 1960...
I ate a bowl of oatmeal.
Yes! Me! Who would have thunk it?
Now don't keel over from shock even though I almost did. I do not like oatmeal, hated it as child along with grits.
Yes I know all the health benefits to oatmeal: reduces cholesterol, helps in lowering blood pressure, fiber, yada, yada, yada. , I just have hated it; never got over the intense dislike.
But I promised a friend who suggested something I found a bit intriguing to see if I could (no pun intended) swallow it.
Well by golly, it worked! What was the suggestion? Something I love and would drink all year long...
So what I did after preparing the oatmeal in which I had added cinnamon and finely chopped apples
I poured a 1/4 a cup of warm eggnog, took a deep breath & went for it.
It was really rather good. I had to resist the mental process so I can be open to giving oatmeal the benefit of the doubt & actually liked it.
Ok, I did not have a coronary from ingesting.
Yet no one rolled out the brass band with a second line...
Shucks! Well you can't win it all :=).
But I was pleased and now almost 5 hours later I am still full, satisfied.
So who knows maybe it will become part of my new regimen as I bring forth more micro-adventures.
So it was mission accomplished.
But I forewarn anyone, I will not, unequivocally NOT consume grits. It took me 50 years for oatmeal, I do not have the time or desire to manage grits!
