It was a Perfect Day for Perfect Oatmeal at 7th and Montana this morning as I decided to put Starbucks' Controversial, New Breakfast Cereal to the test. The commotion started as soon as I placed my order. "Marty's ordering the Oatmeal!," cried Barista Amanda. "I'll go grab the fixin's!," said Barista Robb. "I'll start harvesting the Oats," said Barista Tyler. Moments later, there it was: A steaming, cardboard container of Oatmeal topped with dried fruit, nuts and brown sugar. The Peanut Gallery was quick to chime-in. "It's just a bowl of Hot Mush," observed Screenwriter Nat, "I can't stand Hot Mush ... Cold Mush is one thing, but Hot Mush is something else!" I stared at the Mush, allowing it to cool, while passersby offered-up various other opinions. "I'm sure all the fruits and nuts make it better," said Joyce, charitably. "Trust me," said an Anonymous Insider, "It's just a bag of Instant Oatmeal -- nothing special -- you could make it the same way at home!" By this point, my Oatmeal had congealed into distinctive lumps under a blanket of dried fruit. How did it taste? Delicious ...!
