... in Hyrum's mouth, that is. Tonight on no-pay-per-view: Hyrum vs. Oatmeal!
"I knew something was up. This was the first time I saw Mom and Dad eating at a table when we didn't have company since we moved to our new home. Then they put me in this weird new chair that they covered in plastic bags. Suspicious? I think so."
"Then they started eating in front of me. They always do. Steak, pizza, ice cream, never offering to share. Dad even teased me this time and asked if I was interested in eating it too. This is me saying, 'ohhhhh yeah, would I!"
"And they gave me some! Mom had a little bowl next to her with the oatmeal in it, and she gave me some! Put it on a spoon and stuck in my mouth, she did! Boy, was I surprised! After WEEKS of not being offered anything but milk..."
"I'm still the same Hyrum, of course, so I tried to assert control at once, taking the spoon to try to feed myself."
"I spent most of the time trying to reach for the bowl before I figured out that the spoon was where the action was."
"Mom gave me the first spoonfuls, and then Dad took a turn. He was really excited, and I was starting to get the hang of it by the end."
"Open wide, then close so it doesn't fall out. I did even better eating it today!"
"How do I like oatmeal? It's grrrrrreat!"
"I heard a rumor that there may be an exciting new food coming up later this week ... peaches! What are those?"
