The human female is weird about fruit in her breakfast cereal. Blueberries are acceptable, because they are small, but banana slices and strawberries and peaches are not–she says the pieces are “too big” and “too squishy.” Chopped dates are all right, and raisins are good. In fact, she usually keeps a box of raisins on the dining room table for quick additions to the shredded wheat or fake Cheerios. They go in the bowl, then the cereal, then the milk. Yes, indeed, it’s good to have the raisins where you can find them.
Ehehehehe. It’s an added bonus (for me) that that is also where the ants can find them.
They’re harmless, tiny, persistent, a good source of protein, and the exact same color as the raisins. So I really don’t see the problem.
