The Noxious Green Color of my Shamrock Shake Should be a Clue That I'm Probably Ingesting Hazardous Waste, but it Tastes So Magical That I Don't Care

Oh my god, you guys.  Just… oh my god.  I’ve just returned from a trip to McDonald’s with my brother, where I was introduced to what must surely be the Nectar of the Gods.  Available only for a six-week span from February into March, the frighteningly green colored and deliciously vanilla-mint flavored Shamrock Shake has just edged Starbucks’ Caramel Apple Spice out of it’s number one spot on my Beverages That Are So Full Of Sugar And Calories That Drinking Them Even Once A Month Is Too Often But They Taste So Good That I Don’t Care list. 

It tastes so good that I don’t even care about the fact that the jaded teenager at the drive-through window probably thought that I was my brother’s girlfriend.  (I can’t go anywhere with either of my brothers without someone thinking that we are an item.  A few Christmases ago, an elderly couple at church thought that Kirby and I were married, and then asked if one of the girls in the kiddie choir was our daughter.)

I’m still drinking the shake!  Right now!  Seriously, you have to try this.  I am not over-selling it, I promise.  My family thought that I was doing that with the avocado club egg rolls at California Pizza Kitchen, but then we went there, they tried them, and now guess where Macky wants to go for his 18th birthday dinner tomorrow night?  BAM.  If I tell you something is good, it’s good.  So trust me.  You won’t be disappointed.

P.S.  MahJong Quest III has hit a bit of a snag; I’m almost to the end, but I can’t get past this one puzzle and I refuse to skip it in exchange for half of my total score.  So that’s where I’m at right now.  I could tell that you were wondering.
