Speaking of reasons why I’m NOT at my fighting weight…
The convience store of choice here in the Mid-Atlantic area is Wawa. If God himself decided to create a convenience store, it’d be Wawa. Great hoagies, great deli, fantastic coffee I’m told, soft drinks galore and tons of goodies to eat. Wawas are ubiquitous here — I pass 3 every morning on my way to work.
And within the last few months they’ve started with self-serve milkshakes. F’real Milkshakes! You grab your choice of flavour (chocolate, vanilla, strawberry, or coffee) from the freezer and pop it in the blender’s cupholder. Next, you press a button for your desired thickness. Much like the Assumption, the cup with the frozen goop inside is pulled up into the blender. Then? Magic. Or, rather, blending. The cup descends back into your field of view, and instead of a frozen block of chocolate, you receive a perfectly blended milkshake.
Truly a dangerous thing. Pardon me while I break into song..
