We have married friends who told us a story about when they were in college and had gone out on their first date together. The next morning, each one went down to get breakfast in the dining hall of their respective dorms. She sat down with her cereal and thought about all of the details of last night’s date: Did she like him? Did he like her? What might happen next? What would her friends think of him? When should the meet? Where would the go next?
But what did he think about when he sat down to eat his bowl of cereal? In his words, “I was just thinking about the cereal.
I just had to laugh.
