I wanted to combine the word grand and grain, but it didn't seem to well. Graind. But grandiosity means, using synonyms loosely, feeling really great about not a whole lot, and grains because the things mentioned were granular. But granular and grand and/or grandiose didn't really work. Grand. Pretty sure I've seen that word before. Grandule...? No, no, graindiosity's fine.
