Deciding to eat healthier breakfasts, my brother-in-law declared that oatmeal would now be his cereal of choice. But after eating his first bowl, he told my sister, " I sure hope I develop a taste for this stuff. It goes down real rough."
"Well," she asked, "how long did you cook it?"
"You're supposed to cook it?"
That reminds me of the one about the guy who returned a new chainsaw, complaining that his old had saw worked better. When the salesman pulled the starter rope, the guy covers his ears and says, "What's that noise?"
It also reminds me of building my first bee hive box. I had to ask, "But which way do the frames go, longways or shortways?" HaHaHa! The learning curve is indeed steep at the beginning.
