I sometimes eat cereal stuff late at night, but never in the morning.

And I don't know anyone who puts peaches on their cornflakes either.

I put peach slices on my home-made muesli.

I seldom eat cornflakes WITHOUT fresh strawberries dredged with caster sugar but we've hardly touched the cornflakes this year.

No, doesn't work.
At some point in the ride, you might find yourself in Osaka with Spanish speakers where you had expected Edinburgh talking Greek. This does not mean you are lost, or even off route.

The Americans solved the problem of breakfast cereal being essentially shaped and processed cardboard by coating it in sugar*. I have little moral fibre, of course, and long since gave up trying to corral my urges. I eat toast smothered with proper salty butter.

*Every now and again, when in the US, I'll grab of a little packet of Cheerios or similar just remind myself of how sugary they are. Basically, if you can get to the end of the bowl, you'll be bobbing up and down like you're on the wrong dose of antipsychotics and your eyes will be spinning like a fruit machine during a power surge with words falling out of your mouth like you've just hit the jackpot. I'm sure that if you plot the uptick in attention disorders in American youth next to breakfast cereal consumption you'll have a nice linear correlation.

Admittedly, the toast I had last week in the hotel breakfast buffet was, for all intents and purposes, sliced cake.

My advice as a once-upon-a-time resident alien is to give up the fight and order the pancakes and not spare the syrup. I used to get my bread from an artisan place and I think it was about $80 a loaf and even then I had to hide in the kitchen and leap out every time she reached for the sugar.

Or the French toast which should be wrong on about every level possible yet isn't.
