serial cereal regret

There are, in life, a number of things that you can feel great about afterward

going to the doctor when something is wrong (this is never ever a bad idea, but it feels like half the people I know don't do this?)
also: taking medicine
going to bed early and skipping the end of the night
that summer with the pool
setting GMail goggles for midnight
secretly putting money into a savings account
buying something corduroy, or a nice bike

Then, a number of things that seem like a pretty okay idea at the time, but can make you feel terrible after
drinking too much in one night (or specifically, drinking the wrong things involving whipped cream flavored vodka)
most haircuts
committing to the wrong shoes for a long day/night
probably face piercings
making out with the Wrong Person
wrong clothes in the dryer
getting involved in an eBay bidding war for something you weren't even sure you wanted

More than any of these though, I always regret Peanut Butter Crunch.  (I don't buy it often, and usually the second half sits around and gets stale because we don't have good milk).  After a long/weird night, coming home and having a heaping bowl of the Cap'n sounds great.  Then you eat it.  And it tears up your mouth.
Am I the only person this happens to?  For hours after eating it, my mouth feels like I had a bowl of ninja stars for breakfast.  But it's so goodThis is the realest Catch 22.

I feel similar about the Cap'n with Crunch Berries so I rarely let myself buy it. My mouth always ends up feeling like it's coated with grease but simluntaneously having a million tiny cuts. But it just tastes SO good, especially after drinking.

Carina. I think it's great that YOU got a dog that I see once a month and don't have to pick up after.
