‘Tis the season to be jolly – and to enjoy a McDonald’s Egg Nog milkshake. I rarely go to McD’s – but I love the Shamrock shake and the Egg Nog one too. However, I’m not a big fan of the new “Triple Thick” recipe. I like mine “Single Thick” thank you very much. I just have to work too hard to get the new one into my mouth.
Let’s get something straight, here: I ain’t drinking these things for the excersise. If you know me – my mouth gets enough excersising with all of the talking and wild facial gestures I make each day. Sometimes I just want to relax and enjoy some egg nog goodness. And, oh boy, is it good!
I had an online fun conversation with my facebook friends yesterday on the subject. Here’s what went down with E’s status update yesterday afternoon:
EP: E thinks Jesus must be proud of egg nog ice cream being associated with his birth.
SL: Wasn’t Jesus born in the summer? Eggnog ice cream makes all kinds of sense.
Me: I like to think that Jesus is a big fan of ice cream, personally.
EP: that’s what I’m saying… I’d be proud to have eggnog ice cream associated with my birth. If there was a fourth wise man, I’m sure he would have brought some. I’m kind of assuming a lot here, though.
Me: The only reason they didn’t bring it was because they didnt’ have a cooler. So they substituted with myrrh.
SL: Or maybe myrrh is just a fancy pants bible word for ice cream. I don’t know you, julianne, but i appreciate your theology.
The moral here is Triple-Thick, Single-Thick or what-have-you… I hope you have a chance to enjoy one of the simple pleasures of the holiday season. 🙂
