Those of you who are Starbucks aficionados are doubtless familiar with the fancy drinks offered there. There are frappes this and mochas that. Nowhere, though, have I seen a drink that addresses the needs of the menopause woman, especially the MMW (Mormon menopausal woman) who eschews coffee.
I have in mind some interesting drinks for Starbucks and other coffee places to put on their menu.
- The Hot Flash in a Hurry. This is composed of 90% ice and one percent straight chocolate syrup. You can drink it or apply it to your chest as a poultice.
- The Stay-Out-of-My-Way. This is composed of tomato juice, tobasco sauce, and, once again, 90% ice. It is for those times ini a woman's life when the universe or anyone else in her orbit better not mess with her.
- The You're-Gonna-Live-to-Regret That. This is the revenge drink. It is filled with fiber, flax, and a healthy dose of Cod Liver Oil. Once a woman has a swig of this, she is ready to take names and kick butt, not necessarily in that order
Gem for the day: if you see a woman ordering any of the above, get out of her way, 'cause she's hell on wheels and loaded for bear.
