Somewhere in my teens there was a book, perhaps originally a refrigerator poem, called something like Everything I Ever Learned, I Learned in Kindergarten–I think that is what it is called. Like a lot of things, if I really need to be accurate, I would probably have to look it up. This wouldn’t be hard, because I am using a computer to type this up, after all. Because that isn’t really the point, and I am not going to quote it directly (I can’t because I don’t actually have the book). I Just wanted to impart two things the book taught me (I believe, because without the book I cannot be so sure) that have stuck with me.
- Cookies and milk taste great together. Since I am an avowed cookie dunker (milk or coffee, occaisionally booze) I known this on a cellular level my whole life.
- Naps are good. I generally don’t like sleep. I don’t love sleeping, and I rarely look forward to sleeping. However, an unexpected nap, on the couch, most often a result of boring television or physical exhaustion, is a wonderful thing. Since my cat took it upon himself to join me, I am pretty sure it qualifies as today’s perfect moment.
