Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, whether you're a growing child, a college student on a budget, or a recently divorced, 47-year-old-man whose cooking skills include this and heating a can of spaghetti in the microwave. (Hint: It's all in how you open the can.)
The best thing about cereal is its simplicity, which is a far cry from the difficulties of making a marriage work. For starters, you'll want to get your supplies, which include a bowl, a spoon, milk and cereal. I like to use 2-percent, because that's how much of my stuff I got to keep in the divorce. I also went with Cheerios because it's the only cereal I could afford after the alimony. Of course, any box of cereal will do.
Now you'll want to pour the milk over the cereal. You can use as much or as little milk as you like. Personally, I like to drown my cereal in milk, the same way I drown my sorrows in booze and self-loathing.
