When I was a kid, I was allergic to oats. As such, I couldn’t have oatmeal. Not with butter, maple syrup, or anything. As such, I craved oatmeal terribly:
However, I wasn’t allowed to have it (same with Cream of Wheat). I had to have rice cereal instead. Even with butter and maple syrup, I hated it:
I snuck my way into getting oatmeal whenever I could.
However, around about the time when I was thirteen or so, my oat allergy went away. Thus, I could have oatmeal whenever I wanted. I had it quite a bit. Eventually, I didn’t want oatmeal anymore. Now it seems completely boring and I generally avoid it.
Perhaps there’s a moral of some kind here. However, I also had the same thing with pancakes…and I still crave those.
