Two Birds

Did you know that refrigerated Duncan Hines home-style milk chocolate frosting tastes like fudge?

I know this because sometimes I buy a 16 ounce container and, over the course of a few weeks, call a few spoonfuls dinner…along with a cocktail, natch.

It lasts longer than an open container of most other refrigerated things I can think of: milk, leftovers — the only things it seems to not outlast are salad dressing, barbecue sauce and other condiments…but, really, how would those ever come close to standing in for a meal?

As for that adult beverage, I’ve dubbed it Two Birds by virtue of it consisting of Diet V8 Splash and vodka: a helping of antioxidant vitamins while cocktailing. Toss in a wee bit of triple sec and it’s delightful beyond description.

Bonus points if a meal such as the above happens to occur on a night when something like, oh, You’ve Got Mail is also on TV. So what is all this leading up to? What could I possibly be thankful for on this warm June evening?

The fact that my dinner did coincide with that very film tonight. Sometimes the planets align so perfectly, it confirms that which I already knew: yes, yes — there is a God.

Here’s to all our planets aligning and finding joy and happiness in the simple things.

One thought on “Two Birds

  1. “You’ve Got Mail” is the I-ching. “You’ve Got Mail” is the sum of all wisdom. “You’ve Got Mail” has the answer to any question.
    What should I get at Starbucks? “Tall. Decaf. Cappuccino”
    What should I say when I propose to somebody? “How about some coffee or, you know, drinks or dinner or a movie… for as long as we both shall live?”
    The answer to your problem is: “You are a lone reed standing tall, waving boldly in the genius sands of YGM”
    Have I seen this movie too many times? Perhaps…but I am now going to envelop myself in a cashmere wrap and watch it while eating a ‘frozen hot chocolate’. Ciao!
