Red and Rover (3/12/09)


Breakfast is the one meal where consistency is valued over variety. We may want to “try something new” for dinner, but breakfast arrives too early in the day for such indulgence. That’s why people have the same cup of coffee, the same scone or the same peanut butter toast, day after day. This principle also applies to dry cereal. There’s nothing worse than choking down a bowl of Rice Krinkles at 7:00 am when you were fully expecting a bowl of Rice Krispies. The generic manufacturers may claim that they’re using the same recipe, but as the boy in this strip can attest, the slightest difference in flavor or texture can be intolerable early in the morning.
