So as I may have mentioned before, I've been sorting through old crap my parents are tired of storing in their attic and came across Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day. It was in a box that included my first embroidered DisneyLand Mickey Mouse hat and other useless junk only a mom would save. When I was about the age of the kid ("look with care for the shape of a square...") in Close Encounters it was my favorite book, yet I had completely forgotten about it.
I love this line and Alexander's expression:
At breakfast Anthony found a Corvette Sting Ray car kit in his breakfast cereal box and Nick found a Junior Undercover Agent code ring in his breakfast cereal box but in my breakfast cereal box all I found was breakfast cereal.
As I recall, I felt even more cheated than Alexander, because we never had cereal that included a toy prize inside. I wonder if Nigel did?
For some reason this MONDO SCHLOCKO image brought to mind our favorite dynamic duo.
I may need to rethink the 6 Degrees of Casey Serin game I had in mind for today. It's probably too easy...
Yet another update...
