I Had Not So Ordinary Oatmeal for Breakfast

I had oatmeal for breakfast. No, not ordinary oatmeal that looks at you and says, “Is that the best you can do?” Oh no. The box says a half-cup is one serving. I’m a growing boy, so I made it healthy, spilling over the edges, half-cup. I added a handful of goji berries, sprinkled in some dried tart cherries, and a handful of frozen cranberries. I added two cups of water, put the pot on with cover and turned the stove on to medium heat. I had time to floss, brush, and shave. I wasn’t wasting a minute. When I checked out my oatmeal it was starting to bubble to the beat of the music I had playing in the background (I’m in south Texas so it had a Tejano beat). I took the top off and began to stir my oatmeal. I didn’t want it to burn. I like my oatmeal thick, so I cooked it down. When the oatmeal reached the perfect consistency (thick enough to be used for cementing bricks), I took it off the burner and let it sit while I showered. When I finished showering and dressing I was ready for breakfast. My coffee was waiting for. I took a cup of strawberry yogurt and a cup of blueberries out of the fridge. wI added cinnamon to the top of my oatmeal. It was a great meal. I’m fired up and feel like dancing through the day. I think it was the goji berries that brought about this great mood.
