Once upon a time, there was a sweet, young mother who enjoyed stopping at McDonald's daily for a cold, tall cup of Iced Coffee (sugar-free vanilla, please and thank you). After many months of this, the young mother got a glimpse of her bumpy tummy in the mirror and proclaimed:
"Death to you, blasted McDonald's Iced Coffee!! You have turned my jiggly, bread-doughlike tummy into a LUMPY jiggly, bread-doughlike tummy! Be off with you!"
And she swore off McDonald's Iced Coffee, forever.
Turns out, "forever" lasted about a year. Who knew that "forever" was only a year long?! And on that sweltering hot, lacking sleep the night before, day; no more or less than 365 days (or more like "approximately") after that "forever" proclamation, that Iced Coffee never tasted so good on
my her lips.
After several days of trips to the McDonald's Drive-Thru, the sweet, young mother decided that she could NOT revert to her old habits...that, while her tummy was still jiggly and bread-doughlike, the lumpiness had definitely become less noticeable, and who wants THAT look back?
Not me...I mean, not she.
Then, an angel from Heaven appeared in the form of "The Pioneer Woman" with a recipe for a homemade iced coffee (and trust me, brewing a pot of coffee and letting it sit overnight does NOT make a good iced coffee...), and all was right with the world again.
The sweet, young mother can have her iced coffee and drink it too...(especially when mixed with Fat Free French Vanilla creamer)...and they lived happily ever after.
