I've never been a huge fan of Fruit Loops. Last weekend I inhaled the aroma of a lime and thought, 'hey, that smells like Fruit Loops.' Since then I have been dying to get my hands on a nice bowl of the multi-colored loops that taste like sugar and nothing like fruit. This morning my dream was achieved.
Henry and I were watching Modern Family when we had to pause the playback so that Hulu could freaking buffer and not stall on us. Henry went to the kitchen to get himself a glass of soda. I took advantage of his proximity to the cereal and milk I so desired.
Me: Oh! Oh! Oh! Do you know what would make you the best person is the whole wide world?!
Henry stares at me waiting to hear my probably crazy follow up.
Me: If you got me a bowl of Fruit Loops.
Henry: I assume you want milk?
Me: Yes and a spoon!
Henry: Did you need to tell me you wanted a spoon?
Me: Well, I felt I had to clarify since I only asked for a bowl and you had to ask me about the milk. I'd rather you know that I'd also like a spoon than to get no spoon at all.
As he poured my bowl of cereal, I commented once again that limes smell like Fruit Loops. I watched as he stuck his face towards the opening of the box and inhaled.
Henry: I will agree the Fruit Loops smell a little like limes.
Me: Limes smell like Fruit Loops!
Henry: Yes, but limes were around before Fruit Loops, but I guess you knew Fruit Loops before limes.
Me: You've figured out my logic.
It's true. I knew all about Fruit Loops before I was ever introduced to limes. In fact, I cannot remember the first time I saw a lime in real life. I don't think I even tasted an actual lime until I did that one shot of Patron. Even then I thought that the lime tasted like Fruit Loops. I think I might like limes. Or Fruit Loops. It's hard to tell.
