Sometimes, I think we just don't appreciate the little things enough.

Take, for example, milk.

Smooth, creamy, cold, straight from the refrigerator. Poured into a freshly washed glass.

(a glass with a handle, of course. we are romantic, not foolish. easier to *carry*)

Then, a can, a delicious, cold can, of Hershey's syrup. Chocolate.

(like it would be anything else)

Then pour.

Just watch. It's a zen moment. Appreciate the time you spend pouring.

(Because cold syrup has the viscosity of gum, and so, you may be waiting a while.)

Ommm.

(still waiting)

Ommm.

(still waiting)

Ommm.

(you're getting kind of tired of being zen)

Look! Chocolate! A single, magical, dark ribbon hurtling toward the surface of the milk.

(more like, meandering toward, because again, viscosity liken unto gum poured. very slow)

You wait while you pour.

(It's a thin ribbon)

Wait.

(this gets old very fast. shake the can)

Wait.

(seriously. shake it.)

Then spoon! Quick, rapid, one might think desperate, but you are in your zen place stirring, and finally, it's that rich color that says, drink me! Drink me! Drink me!

And so you do.

This is a zen moment brought to you by jenn.

And now, you're Moment of Zen tm...

*g* I'm panicking 'cause NYC party is only a month away.

Milk is my anti-drug. And anti-panic.

That's a QAF thing, or just a LJ thing? I can't remember. Is josselin going?

I'm sure it will be a huge success, drink milk, breathe. Apparently drinking 24 oz of milk every 24 hours helps weight loss, Dr./Mrs. Bartlett tells me so.

I watch way too much television.

Hee! It's "Mastering the art of Zen through Chocolate".

It is totally teh thing to do. This should be a book. Or a movie deal.

yummy, wanna pour me up a glass?

*pours glass*

Teh syrup might take longer.

*is at one with the syrup*

Feeling very calm and peaceful now.

Well, except for the overwhelming craving for chocolate milk...

You know you're amazing when you can write a short ditty about chocolate milk and have your readers craving a glass shortly thereafter! Lol

Actually my friend and I have decided, we like the Yoohoo Chocolate Milk the best. We bought some yesterday, it was on sale. And better yet it was pre-made. Now we feel as if we can't get through a day without the stuff.

And do not forget the Point of Saturation, where no matter how much you stir and stir and stir, the chocolate will not dissolve any further into the milk. The milk is replete with chocolate and will accept no more.

Continue to add until there is a quarter-inch of undissolved syrup collected in the bottom of the glass, and then drink.

*sugar coma*
