Snacks in your system

Graphic Vivien Leung

I have a one-track stomach. If the threat of developing Type-2 diabetes and losing a foot weren’t so realistic, I would only ever eat sugary breakfast cereals.

But the other day something threw a wrench in my lust for that cold milky goodness. A few hours after finishing my third bowl of Sugar Crisp, I made a quick trip to the bathroom and discovered something startling. My urine smelt exactly like Sugar Crisp. I haven’t eaten cereal since, because I can’t decide whether this occurrence has made cereal infinitely less appealing or my own urine slightly more appealing.
