Me & My Muse – Day 475: 10 Boxes of Cereal

To sum up this morning’s shift, it was very easy.  Just before the lunch rush (if you could even call it that), I got the last batch of dough done.  After that, I kept busy for the rest of the shift and completed the drop.  The balance was +$0.33.  Very good for a Sunday shift.

After I finished work, I helped myself to a “free” Quarter Pounder with Cheese.  Why the quotations?  Because it really wasn’t free.  Despite the food game piece that I gave them,  it cost an extra $0.35 for them to put jalapeños on it!  First world problems, I know.

After the not-so-free Quarter Pounder with Cheese at McDonald’s, I went to Meijer to solve the problem with my cereal shortage.  I bought 10 boxes of cereal, two gallons of milk and another bottle of Chipotle Tabasco Sauce.  With this shopping errand done, I made my way back to Sanford.

Once in Sanford, I stopped at another McDonald’s, where I redeemed my last Monopoly at McDonald’s food game piece:  Any Small Frappe or Small Smoothie.  I redeemed a Mocha Frappe, which was actually free this time.  It didn’t cost extra to make it mocha.

When I got home, I drank my small Mocha Frappe and completed the outside errand of raking up the piles of pine needles.  I then washed the dishes.  All in a day’s work.


Muse:  I’ll say.

What’s left is to unwind and enjoy what’s left of this day.

Muse:  Another busy day I wager?

An early morning oven shift.  This one will be long, from 8 to 5.

Muse:  Nine hours?  You better not stay up too late.

I won’t.  I never do on these kinds of nights.

Muse:  I’ll leave you to your evening.  I’m off to do some reading.  Good night if I don’t see you!

Good night, Muse.


With 10 boxes of cereal, I won’t have to worry about running out for a while.  With just two hours left to enjoy my evening, I better get going on that.

Today’s high is going to be 58 degrees and the silver lining is having a pantry full of cereal.

To those of you who love cereal shopping, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.


Muse:  Cereal?  That’s the good thing about me being an Intangible.  I only have a diet of ideas so I never have to worry about restocking them.  Time for a delicious idea dinner!
