When my husband’s sister Elise became very ill, I went to New Jersey for a couple of months or so to deal with it. (Bill is not great with medical stuff and his other sister had been dealing with everything for a long time – so I felt, I was the logical choice to step up.)
It turned out to be the hottest part of the hottest summer ever in New Jersey.
I stayed at Elise’s apartment, and she had a window AC unit – but I was getting really bad headaches and I suspected some kind of leak and/or fumes were involved, so I didn’t feel safe using it.
I ordered two huge fans (one for the bedroom, one for the living room) and made do.
It was so hot that I seldom felt like cooking anything or even picking up a hot meal on my way home.
What to do?
I ended up craving Lucky Charms cereal.
And I ended up basically eating nothing but Lucky Charms cereal with cold milk for several days.
And I learned something.
Lucky Charms are not just magically delicious.
They also magically turn your poop bright green.
I mean, bright neon glow-in-the-dark green.
WTF do they put in that stuff?
But I thought you should be warned.
In case you get a craving.
And your poop comes out bright green.
It’s okay. Don’t panic.
Lucky Charms are just magical that way.
