Leave me alone and let me eat my breakfast

Gennie says Yankees love Cream of Wheat, and people South of the Mason/Dixon line would rather eat 15 brands of grits than to ever take a taste of some old nasty Cream of Wheat. Their constant derision and comments are startin' to chap her ass. She really said that:

Wanna know what really chaps my ass about the South?

Me, I like Cream of Wheat and grits equally, in second place behind Malt-O-Meal. If'n ya wanna talk about somethin' really nasty: oatmeal. Keep it for the cookies, cause all mushy in a bowl ain't nuthin' I even wanna spoon into my mouth.

[UPDATE: Even this is preferable to OATMEAL]

LOL...you've never heard a woman say "chap my ass" before? ;)

As for oatmeal, I agree. It tastes good, but it has the consistency of boogers. Blagh.

I don't like any of those choices, I would like to sleep through breakfast myself...

Sound's like you all are making instantaneous oatmeal; the stuff you stir hot water into. Go to your local earthy-crunchy store, buy some real oatmeal, and simmer it for a while. Actually, back when instant oatmeal took five minutes to cook it was tolerable, but 15 minute oats are probably where you should set your minimum. I like it best with peanut butter mixed in.

Please save all the oatmeal for cookies and granola.
