Oy Vey, Now it’s Strawberry Parfait Day? (6/25)

Am I lazy for re-Pressing my own chocolate parfait post from 5/1 for National Strawberry Parfait Day? Not necessarily. Maybe I’m so egotistical that I think that I write everything perfect the first time so that once I’m done writing about something, there literally is nothing more to say on the matter.

Or maybe it’s because I’m lazy. Whatever. It’s just that I already did all that research on the parfait, and I kind of am in “poo-poo-land” about parfaits anyway. Plus, since I already said that the chocolate one was quite possibly the only and best way to go when you go parfait, it just feels really lame to go back on that and come up with all kinds of half truths about a strawberry one. I mean, how can you make the perfect parfait even more parfait?

They really are two completely different food groups. The chocolate parfait was something I couldn’t even eat half of without feeling grossly over-stuffed, while the strawberry parfait (both picked up from Publix because they always have them) was something that barely felt like I had eaten anything at all. I think it needed a layer of cake in there. That would have made a drastic improvement to the experience.

It was fine. Just not chocolate. If you missed it, here’s what I got from the chocoalte kind. Mayday-Mayday! It’s Chocolate Parfait Day! (5/1).


About Jim Clark

"If it was worth doing, then it is worth writing!" -- Jim Clark -- Someone else probably said that before, and I'm sure that each semester she starts her Creative Writing 101 class by writing it on the board, but I never took that lady's class so I am taking her quote! I work in the world of advertising, but I write for a living. Here in the second decade of the '00s, we find ourselves in a culture where virtually everyone writes for a living. With all the clicking and clacking on Facebook, Twitter, emails and texts, our lives are more than ever intertwined with writing. At the same time, it's also become increasingly more important to shorten our thoughts down to as few characters as possible. So, now, more than ever, I think it's also important to hold a place in our lives for expanding and honing our thoughts through writing. This is my place for that.
