Day 131- Chocolate Milkshake

My milkshake serves an important purpose far beyond bringing the boys to the yard (see Kelis- "Milkshake").

Once upon a time when my mom was still my nurse and I was a wee little Jessi, I was violently ill.  I simply could not keep any food in my system, and I was miserable.  I was also underweight to begin with, and the weight I was losing was a huge concern for all parties involved.  My doctor suggested that my mom get me a chocolate milkshake to see if I could take that and use it as my reintroduction to foods.  Magic!

These days my wonderful husband plays nurse, and I have taught him the trick.  Since I haven't eaten a full meal in about four days, he was kind enough to go pick me up a Mickey D's chocolate shake tonight.  Work your magic, milkshake, work it!

Thank you, chocolate milkshake, you made my day.
