There's Sunscreen in my Wassail

I call it the 'breakfast of champions', but hey, that's just me.

December 17:

You're weathering another Las Vegas winter, which is as environmentally unimaginative as a Las Vegas summer, minus the tanning opportunities (although heaven knows those Minnesota tourists will try anyway).

As you dress in your flannel shirt and flip-flops, grab a piece of fudge and wash it down with a Diet Coke to complete the picture of holiday irony.

That's like when I go to Burger King and order the Jumbo Whopper meal, with no onions and get the super jumbo Diet Coke to wash it all down.

Then I ask "instead of Fries can I have Onion Rings with that?"

I just want to say that Minnesotans CAN get a tan in Vegas in the winter. They probably even need sunscreen at indoor pools.

Today, I'd take it, sunscreen or not. There's an ice rink inside my garage (and this is progress, because it means that something once melted there enough to form a puddle that is now ice). Not that I'm complaining... Oh, wait. I totally am complaining.

You could always put the pieces of fudge in a bowl and pour Diet Coke over 'em, then eat it with a spoon. Then it really would be the breakfast of champions. (Just don't cut up a banana with it. Ewww.)

Diet Coke is not for dieting. Don't you remember all the commercials. "Just for the taste of it, Diet Coke"

I miss Diet Coke. :(

Today I wrote about the year we spent Christmas in Las Vegas. And we didn't even get fudge.

if there is sunscreen in your wassail at least your vocal chords won't get burned while you're out caroling

I really want some of this fudge. You know you're torturing me, right? And I wouldn't mind some of that sunshine myself. I'm freezing my chalupas off.

I'm sorry. I just can't bring myself to drink a diet Coke. It's so wrong. Totally goes against my standards and everything I believe in.

I drink the real Coke. The one with the real sugar and the real caffeine.

And, ah, I have to believe you at least wear red sparkly flip-flops so as to be more festive. It would be tacky not to.

I just found your blog and LOVE it! Anyone who solves the problems of life with fudge and Diet Coke is instantly a friend of mine. I do humorous reflections of motherhood on my blog on Mondays -- www.3girlsandapug.com.
