NO STRAIGHT MALE EATS SO SLOWLY...:

Cereal Is the Most Normal Thing You Can Eat. But Do You Eat It Correctly? (Susan Matthews, 10/08/16, Slate)

My way is the correct way, yet I have observed others acting in error. But don't worry, we'll make it normal soon enough.

Here's what I do: I start with a very small pour of cereal. Then I add a large quantity of milk. Certainly too much milk for said amount of cereal. The cereal floats up, I eat it, and then I refill the bowl with equally small portions of cereal, about four to seven times, depending on how hungry I am. And then I drink the milk.

If I am adding strawberries or blueberries to my cereal (definite yes, if they're available), those go in first, at the bottom, because I try to add the proper amount for the entire cereal-eating experience, not just the initial bowl. Strawberries and blueberries don't get soggy. They can hang out in the milk for the duration.


...that the cereal has time to get soggy, and I eat it by the dog bowl full.  

BTW: the fruit obviously goes on the top because some will sink to the bottom as you eat.
