Terah and Jacob were shopping in the cereal aisle the other day.
Jacob saw a box of Lucky Charms (not one of the more nutritive cereals). He pointed to it and really wanted it.
Terah pointed to a better choice, and asked him, “Shall we get that one instead?”
Jacob looked at the other cereal dubiously, unconvinced. Terah added, “It is SQUARES!” That was all it took — now Jacob wanted that cereal.
Terah told me this story, and added “this won’t work for long.” She’s right, of course.
I guess we’ll hope that they’ll come out with octagonal cereal one of these days.
