Unscheduled 2nd Attempt of Expedition Falls Flat
For two days one of the Natives has repeatedly asked for oatmeal. This morning the crew prepared for him a small bowl of oats, sweetened with sugar and fortified with milk and a small pat of butter. The Native cheered excitedly upon hearing that the oatmeal was ready for him only to melt into a puddle of tears upon seeing it. This oatmeal is apparently NOT what the subject had in mind when he requested oatmeal.

One of the crew was able to get him to eat a tiny spoonful when she deftly fed it to him while he rubbed his eyes and made a dramatic "Noooooooo" sound. More dramatic fake gagging and crying ensued.

Lesson learned: the kid doesn't like oatmeal.
