Another birthday. This time my childhood neighbor, that I've written about coming by before with her mom.. She's 23 today. It's also National Chocolate Covered Cherry Day. Not my kind of day, but my boyfriend would sure love it. National Fruitcake Toss Day. I wouldn't even make it or buy it in order to have it around to toss it. National Drinking Straw Day. At home I only use straws for chocolate milk and shakes, but always use them when out. So I like this day.

It has been so long since I had a chocolate covered cherry I don't remember if I like them or not? I never had the desire to eat fruit cake so I will toss one if I get one. I always drink out of straws when I have to drink out as I do not want to put my lips where strangers lips have been! happy belated birthday to your former neighbor!

My GI doctor recommends that I use a straw, especially with soda, because it reduces the speed at which liquid gets into the body (and, with it, air, which can upset the digestive apple cart). I don’t like being miserable so I do what he says. (Well, that’s not completely true: he tells me to stay away from Chuy’s but I still eat there!)
