embarking on a new
that's the saying, right??
so i picked up a box of quaker oatmeal. cinnamon sugar oatmeal, obvs. figured it would be cinnamondelicious.
and i decided to make it this morning. i poured the little packet of oat thingies into a bowl, added the required 2/3 cup of cold water, bunged the thing in the microwave for 1:30 (packet said 1-2 minutes, way to be specific dick) and waited.
it was a bit soupy. so i stirred it and put another :30 on the timer.
and it was still a bit soupy. and BLAZING hot. i decided to bring it in my office and let it cool off a bit. as it did, it thickened into all it's cinnamon-oaty glory. and smelled pretty good, if a little oaty.
then i decided to try it. and was met with a consistency unlike any i had ever encountered before. and i did not like it. so i sent a text to awesome husband.... what follows is our convo.
me: do i have to chew oatmeal?
awesome husband: Um. Maybe.
me: then i don't like them. swallowing them without chewing is possible but i don't know how fucking long it will take to digest.
me: which may be good. then i won't have to eat again all day.
awesome husband: I would guess that you should chew it.
me: then i still dislike oatmeal.
of course, i had already swallowed-without-chewing half of the bowl. so i probably won't eat for another 6 or 7 hours, right? does anyone know the answer to this? do i have to chew oatmeal? because, if so, cinnamon toast crunch shall remain my breakfast of choice.
