Ordering food can be a big ordeal if you think about it too much. Sometimes if I think of something enough times the worst trip over themselves when they come out of my mouth even though I’ve been thinking I should try hard to avoid that exact thing. There are also some certain conventions to breakfast food that I wasn’t aware of. I didn’t know a bagel with lox and cream cheese usually comes with tomato and onion or that people usually get mustard with their knish.

It’s interesting to think about how all these things came to be. Why do we eat cereal with milk? The idea of putting orange juice in cereal is only really disgusting because that’s not something that we usually do. That and I suppose most cereal is designed with the intention of adding milk.
