There's a first time for everything, including making extremely awesome milkshakes! And then balancing it on the edge of a railing praying it doesn't fall to its messy doom. (spoiler alert: it didn't fall.)
They say you can't buy happiness... actually you can buy ice cream and Hershey's syrup which is basically the same thing.
Here's a pice of advice: Poor the milkshake into the glass over a sink. Because most of my milkshake ended up on the counter, dripping down cupboard doors, forming a sticky puddle on the floor. (That's why the glass looks so stick in the picture btw.)
I could probably drink chocolate milkshakes for the rest of my life. I'd probably get sick of them after a while, but it would take a looooooong while. Because milkshakes are awesome. You know, people would probably be much happier if they had a chocolate milkshake everyday. But that sounds a lot like WALL-E, so maybe that's the my best idea.
