“Oh, it’s like Amelia Bedelia,” said the woman hosting the graduation party my family and I attended on Saturday. I had no idea what she was talking about. Another woman chimed in that she uses the books to educate her child who has Asperger’s. The first woman got her copy of “Come Back, Amelia Bedelia” and showed me the page that said:
Amelia Bedelia got the cereal. She put some in a cup. And she fixed Mrs. Rogers some cereal with her coffee.
Amelia’s mistake is similar to my plan for today’s Coffee/Oatmeal Taste Test TweetUp. However, the literal-minded housekeeper used cold cereal, possibly corn flakes. I think the combination of maple & brown sugar oatmeal and dark roast coffee might be delicious. We’ll find out at 1:00 p.m. today at the Pilot Travel Center at 314 Lovell Road. You get to choose from among the various flavors of oatmeal and coffee that they have. Pilot will provide free oatmeal and coffee for all those who show up and are daring enough to combine the two.
