I'm Eating Oatmeal Because You Hate It

So I'm on day two of sick. I've had one of those illnesses where you spend your time either facing or sitting on the toilet. I came home from work early and went to bed for three hours today. So now I'm up and hungry and faced with what to eat.
I've chosen oatmeal.
Because my kids hate it.
From what I can tell, when they were jettisoned from planet OATMEALO their bodies developed a natural revulsion to oats and all the goodness within. Given that anything I am eating usually involves at LEAST the twins screaming and begging for bites of ALL OF IT, oatmeal seemed a good choice. It's an autism thing. I can't explain it in anyway that would be logical to you.
If I have food, they want it. All of it. NOW.

Unless its a food that they hate.

Thus, oatmeal.

I swear to you, I'm going to make a list of foods they hate and dine exclusively on whatever it is.

I will have peace while I eat yet.

You need not explain "it" to me. I get the autism thing. ;) It sounds like you're onto something with a list. Maybe you should follow through and hang it on your fridge.

I do the same thing. My oldest son is autistic and what does he eat? Only my favorite foods. I can't have any unless I want to hold him at arm's length while I scarf it down. Fun times.
