AMAZING

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Some people say laughter is the best medicine, others resort to "retail
therapy" when they need a good boost... both can be effective at times, and I've resorted to both as neccessary. But for me, a cure-all, anytime (or at least for a little while), is a good dessert.

Today, as I often do, I headed to the Senate Cafeteria for lunch. Their food is subpar, but their desserts have yet to disappoint. On today's menu: banana pudding. It's a dessert I came to love while living in Florida. It's even topped off with a Nilla Wafer... a cookie I grew up snacking on.

The calories might not do much for my not especially large behind :) , but it sure tasteed good! I even ate it before I ate my real lunch, which consisted of leftovers (not so amazing). The dessert was so amazing tasting that I even recruited a co-worker to go down and get one! Homemade vanilla pudding, mixed with slices of banana, topped with a dollop of whipped cream, and a Nilla Wafer on top. Take my word for it, this really was amazing!

Who would care if you use the word "amazing" too freely? What else are you supposed to say about something? I see nothing wrong with that. Good food, especially desserts, are definitely amazing!

I could use a dessert like that right now, being that it is 3:40 AM I can't sleep and I'm online.
