Day 62. in which our players discuss the virtues of Guinness®and Raisin Bran ®.

What follows here is a conversation I had with Dad this morning. I think I may send it in as an idea for a commercial - but I'm not sure if I should send it to Guinness or to Raisin Bran.

Commercial Idea #1: 'Best served chilled' featuring Bob.

Alex wanders into the kitchen to pour herself a cup of coffee with her eyes half open. Bob follows her in the hopes she'll feed him.

Alex: "Would you like a bowl of Raisin Bran?"

Bob: (clapping his hands together in front of his chest) "Would I? You mean, you got some of that?"

Alex: (pouring coffee) "Yeah."

Bob: (eyebrow raised) "Well, if you have it, where is it then?"

Alex: "It's in the pantry."

Bob: (suspicious) "In the pantry!... Are you kidding me?"

Alex walks over to the pantry, slurping coffee on the way. With her right hand, she reaches in and pulls out a box of Raisin Bran.

Bob: "Wow! Great! I can't believe you have this supply of Raisin Bran in the pantry!"

Alex pours Bob a bowl cereal at the dining room table. She walks to the refrigerator to fetch the milk. Bob stands in between Alex and the bowl of Raisin Bran.

Bob: (hopeful) "Is this really mine?"

Alex: "Yes, it really is."

Bob: "Wow... Do you have any Guinness to pour over it?"

Alex: "No, Dad. I have milk to pour over it. You don't put beer on your cereal."

Bob: "Well, I do!"
