Petrol, tea and cereal

I’ve often thought it was amazing that you could mix-and-match petrol. In other words if you put Esso petrol into your car, having previously filled up with Shell petrol it still works.

I mean, if you top up your cup of Darjeeling tea with Earl Grey it tastes weird … but it’s still tea!

And breakfast cereal is like petrol.  You can mix-and-match to your heart’s content.  Top up your bowl of Weetabix with Alpen and it tastes great.  Add Coco Pops to a bowl of Rice Krispies and … yum!

However, as much like petrol breakfast cereal might be, crucially if you were to top up your car with Quaker Harvest Crunch your car wouldn’t go anywhere.

Except maybe the garage. Or the scrapyard.

That’s my thought for the day.
