Bad Day Blues

So here's my super duper awesome secret to cure bad days... CHOCOLATE MILK! Yeah, I know, it's awesome (like me :)). But seriously, just like Elle Woods would say, "It has endorphins which makes you happy, and happy people don't kill their husbands!" ..or anything else dumb for that matter!

So here's how you create the perfect chocolate milk.
  1. Find a clean glass (not plastic)
  2. Retrieve chocolate syrup and milk from refrigerator (I suggest Hershey's syrup and organic skim milk.)
  3. Measure one tablespoon of chocolate syrup (or free pour) into glass. The more chocolate, the happier you'll be!
  4. Fill remaining amount of glass with milk.
  5. Stir. I highly suggest stirring with a straw, as I have noticed that using a spoon/fork/knife/any type of flatware will make your milk taste like metal. Ewwie! (Yes, I also like to quote I Now Pronounce you Chuck and Larry)
  6. Relax and enjoy!
There are two things I have noticed since I started my job, and they completely boggle my mind. First of all, foreigners like to drink not only hot chocolate but also warm milk at all times of the year. Umm, hello it's 97 degrees out, how about a beer or ice water?! Second, when making chocolate milk, they don't even use milk! Foreigners use half and half. I'm not sure if it's the language barrier and they don't know that it's not whole milk or what, but that's nasty!

I hope my not so secret drink will assist you on your rough days as it has helped me!

How do you cope with a stressful, aggravating day?
