Cereal is the breakfast of champions, and one of the easiest meals to make. We all know you’re supposed to dump it into a bowl, pour some milk over it, and dig in with a spoon.
But, have you ever given much thought about how you’re supposed to close the box of cereal?
Well guess what – we’ve been closing cereal boxes the wrong way for our entire lives!
By the time we reach our 40’s, we’re supposed to know how life works. That’s the age when we can tie our shoelaces in the dark, make a cup of coffee before we’ve even got both eyes open, and tailgate like a pro during rush hour traffic.
However, sometimes our parents how to do things the wrong way. But, how are we even supposed to know how misguided we’ve been, until someone shows us that there’s a better way?
A woman named Becky Holden McGhee, who is a mom of two from Blackpool in the UK, was stunned after she discovered that she had been closing the top of cereal boxes wrong all her life.
In a Facebook post she wrote:
“It’s only taken me 40 years, but I now know the correct way to close a cereal box.”
She accompanied her post with a video that explains, step-by-step, the correct way to close cereal boxes.
