Uh... no. It's just a bowl of cereal. If you call it a bowl of cereal (and sometimes even if you don't), then it's automatically assumed that you're having milk with it.

You know the old saying about when you assume.

Yeah, that is strange. I'm the opposite, I love almost all breakfast foods. A good home-cooked breakfast is one of the best meals you can get.

Uh... no. It's just a bowl of cereal. If you call it a bowl of cereal (and sometimes even if you don't), then it's automatically assumed that you're having milk with it.

You know the old saying about when you assume.

I do... but in this case, what other assumption could possibly be made? Surely if you were going to eat cereal dry (without milk), you wouldn't pour it into a bowl and eat it with a spoon. And surely if you were going to eat it with something other than milk, well, what would that possibly be? The first things that even come to mind are various milk substitutes like almond and soy milk.

I only enjoy cereal without milk.

On my Facebook page a few days ago, I asked if I'm the only person who eats Cheerios straight from a box like a snack. I was surprised at the number of people who do the same.

I don't like sugary cereals. I'll eat corn flakes, crisped rice, and the like only with milk. However, i will eat sugar puffs (or whatever they happen to be called) dry.

I don't mind some milk, but too much is no good. Cereal is best when enjoyed crunchy.

I wipe my hands on shower curtains if there isn't any towels. Using tissue is gross.
Idk if this is strange, but when I take my contacts out I throw them on the floor.

cheerios are good with a well-sugared-and-creamed cup of coffee in them.

Travel mugs of cereal work for me, especially if driving involves getting up early.

Gosh. I have Aspergerís so I have a few. In a car, I like read out the highway signs. I also have to sleep in total darkness with the door closed. My husband though has to have a small light on and the door open. So I sleep in the guest room/ my man cave  with the dog most nights.

Cereal is best when enjoyed crunchy.

I prefer my cereal to be fairly soggy.  The first thing I do when I sit down is to submerge all the cereal as well as I can, working in segments of the bowl if necessary.

I guess I'm one of the few who gets dairy from other sources. Milk is something I rarely purchase, much less consume directly.

We go through 2.5 gallons of milk a week in our house, but that's because we have three children and a home daycare.  The only milk I consume is (a) on my daily morning bowl of granola and (b) in my Sunday morning tea.  Now, cheese, on the other hand...  Well, cheese is my absolute favorite vegetable.

Related question: Is cereal with milk soup?

Imagine if you'd never seen a bowl of cereal before.  Then someone hands you a bowl first thing in the morning.  What kind of crazy soup is this! you'd think to yourself.  You'd think the host was insane, trying to feed that to you for breakfast.

My eldest son eats dry cereal in the morningówell, he used to before he switched to hot instant oatmeal recently.  Anyway, he gets a paper towel, puts it on the table, and pours a huge mound of dry cereal on it.  It's common for pieces to fall of the mound, land on the chair, land on the floor...  Believe me, I wish he'd just use a bowl.  Not a spoon, just a bowl.

Lactose tolerance is a strange habit, according to most of the world's population. Milk is good as an ingredient, but not by itself.

I do this as well even though I know it's probably smarter to get a bowl haha. It's just something about paper towels that I can't get out of a bowl.

We did something similar at an afterschool daycare program, for an afternoon snack, in the 70's.  Loved the Froot Loops, not wild about others.

If you're on a mobile device, it can be very annoying to trim the quotes.

Personally, though, I like to trim as much as possible, so if it looks like the trimming could get messy and/or complicated and/or time consuming, I'll just wait until I have a chance to reply from the computer.

I donít particularly enjoy eating ďbreakfastĒ foods, so my breakfast often consists of sandwiches, pizza, tacos, burgers, or pasta (not always last nightís leftovers; often things I made or bought fresh that morning). Used to have meat and potatoes in a crock pot for breakfast when I was in high school. I should start doing that again.

Taco Bell starts lunch at 9 and I think Sonic does it all day, so those are often my morning go-tos on the road.

So do you eat two lunches, or an early lunch and then dinner?

I generally eat cereal with milk, but sometimes I will munch on it straight out of the box, as H.B. mentions above, while watching TV. It's not that much weirder than snacking on potato chips.

I like milk enough to drink it straight and go through roughly 2 gallons a week.

I got in the habit of disliking breakfast foods whenever I worked graveyard shift. Nobody wants to get off a nine-hour shift and eat breakfast foods, but that's pretty much the only thing most restaurants had. Sonic, Whataburger, and Jack in the Box were the holy trifecta, because all three offered lunch items during breakfast hours.
