If you give him some cereal, he'll also want a spoon.
If you give him a spoon, he'll smash the cereal into little bits and dump it on the carpet.
When he dumps it on the carpet, you'll have to get the vacuum.
When you open the closet to get the vacuum, he'll want his bucket game that is also kept in that closet (High Ho Cherry-O).
If you give him his bucket game, he'll fling his cherries all over the floor.
And when he realizes that Oh Hey! Cherries are food! he'll put them all in a bowl and cook them.
When you realize that all his cherries are now covered in the smashed remains left in the cereal bowl, you'll carry the whole thing to the sink, rinse the cherries, and put the bowl in the dishwasher.
When he hears the cling of the dishwasher, he'll shout the word BOWL!!!
If he doesn't stop saying that, he's going to bed.
