Let me tell you a little story...
(and it's not about a man named Jed)

It's about chocolate sauce... sorta.

Do you know what a sippy cup is?
It's a little plastic cup with a snap on lid that has a wee spout.
Kinda helps with the whole "don't spill that in there" issues that go hand in hand with having children ... and carpets.

Sippy cups make fabulous little shaken'not'stirred devices.
~ Pour in water, spoon in a bit of (for example) koolaid mix.
~ afix the lid.
~ put thumb over wee spout opening.
~ shake it like a polaroid picture.
~ voila!

After dinner... Geo asks about dessert and I, ever the magnanamous host...
offers ice cream and chocolate sauce. (Geo dearly loves choco sauce, but we are, alas, out!)

His peels of agreement are met with my grabbing a sippy cup.
~ Add a little milk... microwave till rather steamy.
~ Add a very generous scoop of nestlies quick.
~ Afix the lid.
~ Put thumb over wee spout opening.
* Warning! Professional race car driver and closed track. *
(do not try this at home.)
~ and shake it like a ... well, you know the drill.

Now... a dramatically large area, around the sink, walls, floor... and, of course, your's truly,
is absolutely painted with choco sauce.

Lesson for today.
Hot milk... and nestlies quick... when shaken, increases volume due to bubble creation, in a massive ... massive way.

Fun eh.
