That crying you heard in the frozen food aisle wasn't from whiny kids. It was from parents reeling from Kellogg's announcement that a flood in its Atlanta bakery is causing a shortage of products, including Eggo waffles, that might not be restored until the middle of 2010. The link is here http://www2.kelloggs.com/general.aspx?id=3006&terms=eggo but in the meantime we thought we might help the mourning, er, morning routine with a helpful list.
7 other things children should drizzle syrup on while waiting for their waffles:
7 The most annoying noisemaking toy they have. Let them go crazy with the syrup, then sadly explain why it has to be tossed when it curiously goes silent.
6 That 3-year old laptop: Finally, an excuse to get that MacBook Air.
5 Mom's keys: The stickier they are, the harder to lose them.
4 The toothbrush: If that doesn't get them to brush their teeth, nothing will.
3 The alarm clock: Finally, a legitimate excuse for missing that morning meeting.
2 Kevin Faulk's fingers: Without that bobble, Bill Belichick is still a genius.
1 Belichick's playbook: If the pages stuck together, maybe he punts. (Nah)
