Maybe I was a lot tougher when I was a kid, but I don’t remember Froot Loops being so dangerous. Just adding milk, then immediately inhaling my morning meal, will apparently hurt the roof of my mouth so bad that I will feel it for the rest of the day.
Now, I don’t eat Froot Loops very often and I guess I was a slower eater in my younger years, and this gave the ‘loops’ more time to turn into mush and thus, easier and less lethal to eat.
I probably should be thankful, as one day I’ll be running my morning cereal through a blender first. Hmmm, a Froot Loop smoothie doesn’t sound that bad, does it?
I was told once, that the reason ‘froot’ wasn’t spelled ‘fruit’ was because Froot Loops didn’t contain any real fruit. And because of this, Kellogg’s could call them Fruit Loops even if they wanted to because it would be false advertising. I was also told the same thing about Cheez Whiz.
I don’t know if that is actually true and normally I would google to find out, but today I’m feeling especially lazy and sometimes it’s just more fun to make stuff up and speculate.
I’m pretty sure there are not any representatives from either of those companies who read me column, but just in case, and for the record,
I love your products. I will also accept any and all sponsorship deals. “Darren’s Drivel presented by Froot Loops” kind of has a ring to it. (Insert your own jokes here)
Besides cereal making me feel my age, remakes of movies that I had seen when I was a kid are making their way into theatres.
Footloose is one of the more recent ones that come to mind.
It was an alright movie and watching Julianne Hough dance was definitely a bonus.
Now I see a remake of the Arnold Schwarzenegger film ‘Total Recall’ will be released in the summer. This time it will star Colin Farrell. I suppose the special effects will be a lot better, but I think Hollywood is just running out of ideas. I’m just wondering if “the” scene will be in the new one.
You know, the scene with that women and her three... well, if you have seen the original, you’ll know what I’m talking about.
V-neck shirts. What a horrible idea. Unless they are worn females. Then they are a great idea.
Finally, this week, I understand that not everyone will like my column. Actually, the person that dislikes and insults my column the most, is probably me.
I do appreciate all the compliments I get and the people that read my rambling thoughts every week. I do welcome any comments, good or bad.
I’m kind of interested to hear the less than favorable comments, more because it will give me something to talk about in the following week’s Drivel. I just ask that you put your name on it. After all, I put my name on my opinions, so it’s only fair if you do to.
