I don't think it's any secret that I am someone who enjoys free things. I also enjoy cereal. So imagine my delight when I found boxes of cereal with a code to send away for a free retro T-shirt. I was determined to collect all four.
Things started out well with Shreddies...
...and Alpha Bits...
I only needed the Sugar Crisp to complete my obsession. Of course, my plans were thwarted. I couldn't find the box with a code. I figured the promotion was over and accepted that my collection would never be complete.
Then - a miracle! While wandering the Superstore in that special haze that only comes when you escape the house without a baby in tow, I found a box of Sugar Crisp with the promo code. Being the well brought up girl I am, I ate the cereal before tearing the box apart to get the code.
You guys - they were out of Sugar Crisp shirts. Total devastation.
|Fun fact - the CCM T-shirt I'm wearing also came from a cereal box. I might have a problem.|
My only hope now is to find a Sugar Crisp shirt at Value Village or something one day. I saw a kid at the arena wearing the Shreddies one...unfortunately it's not the first time I've encountered a child wearing a shirt I also own.
(P.S. - I'm not some insane egomaniac who is all of a sudden obsessed with putting her own pictures up everywhere or anything. I've just been reading articles on xoJane constantly lately and they have a policy where every post has to include a picture of the author, to help the reader connect to them. I think it's a pretty good idea, and I've just realized that taking pictures with the webcam is a lot easier than using the camera and then uploading them. So be prepared to see a lot of random webcam pictures of me. Lucky, lucky blog readers.)
