I work at an office out in the suburbs. I counter-commute via train everyday from my apartment in the South End of Boston. The train I usually take gets me into work around 9:45. After a quick check of my e-mail and voicemail, I like to have a bowl of Raisin Bran. By this time, however, it is about 10AM and all the bowls and spoons in our kitchen are dirty. I’ve learned to improvise. Today I used a plastic sandwich container and a salad spoon. This wasn’t too bad, but the spoon didn’t fit in my mouth comfortably and fishing the bran out of the corners of the container was a little tricky. Still, this is better than using ice-cream scoop. Or a fork.
