A MAN in his late 30s still either overestimates or underestimates how much milk his cereal will need every single morning, he has confirmed.
Joe Turner once again flooded his Cheerios with milk this morning and spent an unpleasant second half of the meal cursing himself while picking floaters out of the bowl.
He said: “What’s that thing about 10,000 hours of practice? Well, I must have done well more than 10,000 bowls of cereal, but still I get it wrong every time.
“Some mornings it’s so dry it’s like that food cheap people give their dogs. Other days it’s a fishing expedition. Why can’t I ever strike that moist-crunchy balance?
“And I’ll come home tonight and there won’t be enough milk for a cup of tea, and it’ll be my fault because there was too much in my cereal, and when will I break out of this vicious circle?
“Once I tried pouring the milk back in the bottle but my coffee tasted of Shreddies. That’s not something you want your coffee to taste of.”
He added: “I have considered having a milk jug next to me while I eat and adding more as necessary. But what if someone saw me.”
