The most unnecessary things in this world are the most necessary

Do you remember getting a brand new box of cereal down from the kitchen cupboard, looking twice at the seal because you couldn’t believe that no one else had gotten to it yet? You’d tear it open and dig your hand down into the cereal, pieces spilling onto the floor from around your forearm, and, finally, your hand would find it. The prize. And whatever it was, it would make you so happy for a short while. Why don’t they have prizes in cereal anymore? I want my kid to have that.

70 days until baby.


  1. some of them still do. Grace was pretty excited to find scratch and sniff stickers in a box of Trix.

  2. For me, it was the prize in the Cracker Jacks box. Can still taste that yummy, gummy popcorn! Wonder what "the prize" will be for this generation?
