Every man alive should know how to NOT piss off a woman.
Rule #1: Do NOT, I repeat DO NOT mess with a woman's chocolate.
My lovely husband brought me home a very small, very delicious mint M&M blizzard from Dairy Queen last night. It was heaven. Mostly because anything mint and chocolate is pretty much my favorite thing ever (besides coffee with mint and chocolate - but that's for daytime).
It got me thinking about how long it had been since I had experienced this particular icy treat. I hadn't had one since before Monsoon. Way before... like so long ago the flashback gave me a shock.
I was on fertility drugs and being poked with needles all the time. I was gaining weight and not getting pregnant. It was late and I needed my chocolate with mint. NOW. Drive-thru fast!
Long story short, they screwed it up, gave me plain vanilla with M&Ms and NO MINT.
Wanna know how where the blizzard ended up? Certainly not where it belonged.
I took globs of it and started throwing it out the window, screaming like the madwoman I had become in that insane moment. We ended up at home with a half-empty, half-melted mess of a crumpled blizzard cup, spilling out onto my lap. That part got thrown across our front yard.
Yes, my husband was a dear to put up with me in those years, but he could have just turned the car around and gone back to let me put that blizzard where it really belonged: In the face of the idiot behind the counter. That kid needed to learn about rule #1.
Sanity or Patience: choose one.
Do you ever have one of those moments where you think, "HA! I am sane!" Then you step in dog poo with your bare feet and remember it was your idea to get the puppy...?
