A couple of years ago I was having breakfast with my dad in my parents apartment in Athens. The apartment has a spectacular view of the Aegean Sea and the sunlight in Greece seems brighter and whiter than anywhere else. We were eating cereal in the kitchen right next to the balcony when my dad advised me that, if I let the cereal soak in the milk for a little while, it would soften.
Being in my 30s, I hope that I would have realised that myself.
Disclaimer: I adore my dad and this does not reflect on his usual logic and conversation.
