This was always one of MY big complaints, too:
Because who wants soggy cereal? NOT ME. Not Linus, either. I always felt like Linus and I were kindred spirits.
So what I used to do was use very very little milk, thereby ensuring that the bulk of the cereal would remain dry and crispy while allowing me access to milk, but nowadays my breakfast is about 113% likely to get interrupted by stuff, so one day I hit on this UNIQUE SUPERINTELLIGENT INNOVATION:
I put the milk in a cup and have it on the side.
So now if I have a bowl of cereal I eat it dry, with a spoon, and wash it down with ice-cold milk and I never ever ever have to look with a distasteful grimace at the sloppy glop that is Apple Jacks in warm milk.
Me: 1, Life: 0. (Life probably has a few more points than that, actually.)
