I am bewildered and perplexed. I have a mystery that I’m not sure even the detective I write about, John Steele, can solve.
My wife and I went out to eat sans the kids over the weekend. This was a last minute plan and we ended up at Sonic. While we were polishing off some double cheeseburgers the guy in the truck next door placed his order.
“I’d like two Oreo shakes. No whip cream and no cherries.”
My wife and I were stunned to silence. Who orders milkshakes and specifically asks for no whip cream?
We had no choice but to analyze the problem. They were ordering a dairy product so to leave off the whipped cream wasn’t due to lactose issues. Next, we thought about calories, but the milkshakes are 480 calories and counting. If you’re concerned about this then leaving off the whipped cream isn’t going to save you much.
Am I crazy? Is there any reason to deny yourself the delicious topping on your milkshake? I say definitely not. Now, what do you think?
