The milk left in the bowl after the cereal has been eaten.

I always assumed that everyone drinks the milk left in the bowl. My personal favorite part of eating cereal is drinking the milk. Tonight, my mother ate a bowl of Cap'n Crunch, and I noticed her pour the leftover milk down the drain. Who else does that?
