My fellow Americans, what I’m asking you to consider is this: What if we added booze to a Frosty?

Such a bold idea is not for the timid, nor for people trying to keep their dignity intact. In service of such a radical notion, I took it upon myself to select more than a dozen mini alcohol bottles from my local liquor store, and got it down to the top three.


I hypothesized that coffee liqueurs would be welcome Frosty additions, and I was correct. A Frosty containing this coffee- and vanilla-flavored rum blend mimicked an after-dinner coffee; beginning the sip with chocolate before quickly transitioning to nutty, sweet coffee. It was quite a smooth pairing.
Score: 8 out of 10

Baileys Espresso Creme

This milky espresso booze fared as well as Kahlua, cementing coffee’s status as a wonderful Frosty companion. I got a distinct Mudslide impression from the sip, with pronounced chocolate-covered espresso bean notes. This is the (very) poor man’s affogato.
Score: 8

Rumple Minz

I’d be lying if I said I hadn’t had Rumple Minz since college. The peppermint schnapps flavor was a surprise hit in the Frosty, creating a sip that’s a dead ringer for melted chocolate chip ice cream. The texture was a bit thin, but the mint-chocolate combination was nostalgic and delicious.
Score: 7.5

Ever notice everyone’s on a low-fat diet after the heart attack? Everyone has time for their kids after the divorce? Everyone’s a financial genius after a bankruptcy?

Sometimes after adversity we recognize that we have been given a gift. A “Gift of Desperation” that changes us and our outlook for the better. In the end, it makes us a more successful person, too.

We can all recognize a “gift of desperation”. It’s the “aha” that comes at the darkest of times. Speak with anyone who has had a life-changing experience, and they’ll tell you how much it has led them to appreciate each and every day. They have a higher sense of awareness and focus on living each day with joy.

Still need convincing? Look how our country pulled together after 9-11-01.

We have gorgeous homes, but are hardly around to appreciate them. We eat at private lunch clubs, but we’re still hungry inside. Our expensive watches can’t keep our time from slipping away.

We are always rushing, rushing, rushing… we need everything to be perfect. Finally, if we are lucky, we realize that we have to stop waiting for life to get perfect to be happy.

DoctorFirst-year students at Med School were receiving their first anatomy class with a real dead human body. They all gathered around the surgery table with the body covered with a white sheet. Professor Abraham Jacoby started the class by telling them, “In medicine, it is necessary to have 2 important qualities as a doctor.The first is that you not be disgusted by anything involving the human body.”

For an example, the Professor pulled back the sheet, stuck his finger in the butt of the corpse, withdrew it and stuck his finger in his mouth. “Go ahead and do the same thing,” he told his students. The students freaked out, hesitated for several minutes, but eventually took turns sticking a finger in the butt of the dead body and sucking on it. When everyone had finished, the Professor looked at them and told them, “The second most important quality is observation.

“I stuck in my middle finger and sucked on my index finger.”

“Now learn to pay attention!”

Not enjoyment and not sorrow,
Is our destined end or way;
But to act that each tomorrow
Find us farther than today….Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Rodin - Thinking Man

People grow old only by deserting their ideals. Years may wrinkle the skin, but to give up interest, is sure to wrinkle the soul.

You are as young as your faith, as old as your doubt, as young as your self-confidence, as old as your despair. When your heart is covered with the snows of pessimism, then, and only then, are you grown old… Gen. Douglas MacArthur

I am convinced that the soul is indestructible and that it’s activity will continue through eternity. It is like the sun, which to our eyes seems to set at night, but has in reality only gone to diffuse light elsewhere…. ….Goethe
