Making a mess.

I woke up earlier than expected on our first morning in New Orleans and immediately did something new, I spilled an entire bowl of cereal on my sister’s kitchen floor. I would like everyone to know that the WORST thing to do in this situation is try and burn away the cereal with an acetylene torch. Somewhere, not too far down that list, you’ll find “vacuuming the cereal with an upright vacuum cleaner. It turns out the beater bar on an upright vacuum will crush the flakes into tiny pieces and shoot them to the far reaches of the room.
