I just really like bowls.

I do, however, get incredibly frustrated by tiny mugs. [You know, the 'normal' sized ones that hold the amount of coffee we are actually supposed to drink.] With mugs, size does matter.

I know you might be wondering if I only eat oatmeal, cereal, and other breakfast foods.*
*Aside from the above photo which I clearly took on purpose to add some diversity to this post.
although, to be fair, these proats with mango + strawberries were eaten in the afternoon
Obviously not, y’all.
I just have a separate special bowl for dinner.
and I really never eat from anything else.
