    I love oatmeal—especially the steel cut kind. Mix in some craisins and top with fresh blueberries, and there’s not a better way to start the day (except bacon, of course, but unfortunately I can’t eat it very often).

    I’m eating oatmeal as I read this strip! Or at least I think I am. What is this stuff, does it have a name? ALICE!

    They’ll just find another name for it, Dill. You need to send thesubstance into oblivion too.

    I’ll add my thanks to Simpsonfan. How do you DO that??

    For obligatory Grandma tale, when the grandson was put on the two-ended swing set after a hiatus because of illness, he went back and forth, saying “Remine, remore!. Remine, remore!” over and over in time to his swinging. I never heard this expression again, so he must have killed it.
