jonah’ll drink it

“Yuk, this stuff is awful! Maybe Jonah will drink it.” That’s probably what Eric said when he realized his recent protein shake mix purchase was a total disaster. Maybe he thought that because I’m a vegetarian I would like to drink something with ‘greens” in its name. I’m not really sure.

Or maybe he knows me better than I realize. Maybe he knows that sometimes I don’t feel like going to the grocery store and often times my cupboards run bare and when that happens I’ll scrounge around and eat just about anything.

Well, that day has come. The cupboards are bare and this green mix is all that’s left. And, yes, it’s semi-awful, but I diluted it with 4 times the suggested water and at that point I can at least pour it down my throat quickly.

Hilary tasted it, too: “I like it in the beginning and the end, but it also tastes like it’s got mushrooms in it.”

Motivation comes in mysterious ways. Thanks Eric, for motivating me to get out to the grocery store.

Maybe if you mixed it with this

Possibly, like his wife Daisy said, "it tastes like old furniture smells like", is a good thing. (comparitively speaking).

Ah, yes… I’ve actually had that reused plastic bottle wine before. I grew to like it after a while.
