Yet another installment in the drudgery that is everyday shopping. The camera-phone makes it a bit more fun – though I get looks whenever I take pics of products. Like I care what people think!
Since most of my readers are indeed biblical scholars, I’m sure each and everyone of you are familiar with Ezekial 4:9. – ” And take to thee wheat and barley, and beans, and lentils, and millet, and fitches, and put them in one vessel, and make thee bread thereof according to the number of the days that thou shalt lie upon thy side: three hundred and ninety days shalt thou eat thereof ”
Yes, nothing yes ‘bread’ like lentils, beans and barley. mmmmm….mmmmmm! Or apparently breakfast cereal.
Apparently it was the break Ezekial lived off of for two years (or was it really only 390 days?) while in the desert. But you knew that – having been heavily immersed in your theological studies.
I did love this blogger’s take on the product though: Kind of makes you wonder why anyone would ever need to improve on the recipe when it came from the mind of God himself?
This is the he same g-d who told Abraham to sacrifice his own son, Isaac, right? Does he have the best ideas or the time to spend in his test kitchen to come up with a better recipe?
Let us not forget that Ezekiel also saw that wheel (way up in the middle of the air). Always interpreted to be some kind of UFO: This was the appearance and structure of the wheels: They sparkled like chrysolite, and all four looked alike. Each appeared to be made like a wheel intersecting a wheel.
Maybe the company should have made the children’s cereal Ezekiel’s 1:17 Fruit Wheels.
