favorites on Friday

I've decided to do something different.  Well, at least on Fridays.  I've gotten a bit complacent, and inspiration doesn't always come at my command.  So....on Fridays I'll be posting one of my "favorites".  Don't expect showy and glamorous, that's not me.  But you can expect to see a glimpse of just who I am.

Here's the debut favorite.  The story behind this particular glass of chocolate milk?  I got the glass at a garage least 15 years ago.   I think it appealed to me because it brought to mind an old-time soda shop.  Not that I've ever been to an old-time soda shop, but I can picture a soda jerk holding the glass up to a fountain machine and filling it with a shake or fizz.  I don't necessarily use it every morning, but its probably the one I reach for first.  So satisfying to pour in the milk, add chocolate syrup, and hear the clink clink clink of spoon stirring against glass.

Ah, it's the simple things in life that give me pleasure.

There may be some out there so young to not recognize the term soda jerk.  This is to show I'm not being derogatory, it truly was a job title.  :)

Isn't it funny how we get a favorite anything that just seems to brighten the day by using it? Ah, but it makes us feel good, it costs little or nothing, so that makes it all okay.

Alright! I was wondering why the milk was white. Finally, you mentioned chocolate syrup at the end. ;) You are using Hershey's DARK chocolate syrup. Aren't you?
