The Excess Milk Situation

I’m sure everyone’s been here before. Finding the perfect balance between milk and cereal is an art; an art that I’ve yet to master. This is going to sound exactly like what I do for a living but instead of mortgage backed securities, its milk and cereal.


We start off with a bowl of cereal and we want a 65% milk coverage model. Pour the cereal, apply the milk. On the initial pour we’ve underestimated the amount of cereal and find that we’re only at 50% coverage putting us long to the model by half a cup. To compensate we pour extra milk which always ends up being too much and find that we’re now 80% covered putting us 15% short to the model.


The solution, add more cereal. This of course starts a vicious cycle of more milk then more cereal. Before you know it, you’ve eaten half a box of cereal and then you’re sad because now you’re almost out of cereal. To make matters worse, your friend will call asking you to grab lunch and you’re too full to go therefore adding to the solitude. If you haven’t figured this out already, it’s hard being me.
