It's really milk-flavored water.
When I have little milk left, I make it a point to pour in concentric circles around the bowl for even distribution. Panic spread as the milk pooled halfway below my normal milk line. I began eating my Raisin Bran by sifting the milk from each spoonful. This way my flakes were wet, but I didn't drink any extra milk that they couldn't absorb. It's times like this that really test your character. Sure I could be greedy and drink the extra milk on the spoon, but then the other flakes wouldn't have their moment in the sun, or in this case my mouth.
Desperate times call for desperate measures when you only have a cup of milk for cereal.
Plus, I wasn't about to eat dry cereal or I would have had to add water at that point. I don't think watered cereal would taste good, but some people swear by it. Then again, many people think my fat free lactaid milk is just flavored water. Thanks to my advanced milk-saving technique, there was enough milk to douse every flake and raisin with almost no leftover milk. The next test is remembering to buy another carton this evening before getting to work tomorrow and opening the fridge only to realize I have no milk at all.
