Picking a cereal. It seems so simple. Right?
Well I am here to let you know that it is not simple for all of us. Andy is the cereal picker in our house. I have referenced before that my husband takes a very long time to do things. He gives everything he does thought, and takes his time making decisions. I on the other hand do things quickly, and like to get things done. Everything is a race. One of my biggest races that occurs every so often is the grocery store! Get in. Get out. Get what you need.
Andy says I always go into the grocery store like a man woman. He says sometimes he feels like he should warn everyone I am coming just in case I run them over. (This might be true ... oops). Most of the time Andy and I go to the grocery store together. Our visit consists of me pushing the cart around the entire store like a crazy lady while Andy stands and looks at all the different kinds of cereal.
You may think I am joking. I am not. I normally pass by him a couple times in my mad dash and he is in the exact same place. Just looking. and looking.
Andy walks up and down and up and down looking at all the different boxes as if this is the biggest decision he will ever make. Then he comes and finds me (which at this point I am most likely almost finished) and smiles and holds out the cereal like a little kid. He is so proud. It is precious.
So next time you pick your cereal and it seems so easy ... remember that it isn't easy for everyone :)
