Niagra Biscuits*

*I found this jotted in a work notebook from 4 years ago...

I went to New York for the first time last week, stayed in midtown, in on business only for three days and when I tell my grandmother Priscilla about it she tells me a story about when she first went to New York, also when she was thirty. It was a package tour that included Niagra Falls. What was Niagra Falls like? I ask her. She tells me that when she was a girl (she's 89 now) her family always had shredded wheat biscuits for breakfast, and that the box they came in had a picture of Niagra Falls, and that was exactly what Niagra Falls looked like.
