Let me tell you a little story. About four years ago, there were two students, Jeff and Terry, that worked with me at WXAV 88.3FM. Every Friday, the two gentleman would have waffles for lunch or dinner. They called it, Waffle Friday. The general consensuses was that the greatness of waffles was slightly under appreciated, and that it was high time that we began to show our appreciation to the breakfast giant. It became a little tradition amongst WXAV staff members. For about a year, Fridays became Waffle Fridays, and we would dine on delicious waffles.
Now I think we can all agree that breakfast food is the greatest amongst all food. No matter the time of day, you can justify dinning on an omelet, whisking up some pancakes, or gobble up the candy meat known as bacon. For me, I've always been a cereal man. No matter the time of day or night, I'll pour myself a bowl and feast of the glory that is Captain Crunch, Frosted Flakes, or Corn Pops. A few months ago, I was speaking with Terry, and we began reminiscing about the "good old" days. Naturally Waffle Fridays was mentioned, and we both smiled.
Later, it dawned on me that cereal, like waffles, was becoming slightly under appreciated. Let's face it, many of us do not have the time to pour ourselves a bowl, before we start our day. Cereal by its very nature is a stationary food. Yet we all have those great childhood memories of mom or dad pouring us a bowl of our favorite cereal and watching a little cartoons before we headed off school. (If you lived in Chicago, you watched the Bozo Show.)
With this in mind, I would like to propose the creation of Cereal Thursday. All you have to do is at some point on Thursdays treat yourself to a bowl of cereal. It can be for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Just take a small portion of your day for yourself, and remember the joys of your youth. Additionally feel free to talk about it. I for one will be tweeting what cereals I will be dinning on, and sharing pictures. I'm also interested in testing the power of the internet and see if we can turn this into a thing. If you wish to participate in Cereal Thursdays, use the hashtag :#cerealthursday on Twitter. If your curious about what cereals I will be dinning on, follow me on Twitter, Twitter.com/pkreten
