Commercials sometimes have a certain runic quality. The runic agenda I noticed this afternoon was about cereal. Cheerios, Frosted Flakes, and Rice Krispies have runicly told me that if I have children, the way to bond with them is to eat cereal together. Pouring the milk, listening to the cereal pop and crackle, or eating sweet flakes during halftime = a happy life with lil ones. I know there’s more to it than that, and I have ‘I threw my cereal on the floor and will cry over spilled milk for hours’ stories to prove it.
