Yesterday Sarah Page stopped in and then we went to the Gardens to walk around in this long-anticipated spring weather. When she initially came over, she came in bringing a surprise: a very large drink from McDonald's. Here in Saint Louis, we have the "Hugo" drink at McDonald's. The Hugo is an extra-large drink, but it's cheaper than a small. Too bad it hasn't found a home in the Utah market.
Anyway, I was delighted with the surprise, for about 15 seconds. Sarah handed me the drink. I set it on the desk, then immediately bumped it. With its cup-holder-friendly shape giving it a high center of gravity, it didn't stand a chance. It went crashing to the floor, the lid popped off and all the beautiful brown liquid rushed onto the floor. It was so young. I didn't even have a sip. I cried on the inside, just a little bit. At least it was on wood flooring and not carpeting.
