Many months ago, I believe it was the last day of school before winter break, I was sitting in class and practically bored to tears. My teachers were obviously already checked out early for the vacation and just lazily put on their favorite movies for us kids to watch, yelling at us to be quiet if we talked (after all, they were still teachers.) So I did what most food bloggers do when bored – daydreamed about innovative, new foods to create and post about.
Suddenly, genius struck as the word “s’moreo” popped into my head. I knew that word could be the title for a super-cool dessert I could make and post. I often feel like blogging is a creativity contest – I always want to feel like I’ve come up with something no one else had thought of before. Something that would inspire awe, admiration, maybe even a little good-natured envy in the hearts of other food bloggers: “why didn’t I think of that?” I can’t tell you how many times I’ve seen great ideas from creative food bloggers and wished I could come up with something so creative, so genius that the rest of internet-enabled society would cheer and virtually hold me up on their shoulders like a victorious quarterback. Well, okay, that’s not really likely to happen. But I still felt at the time I came up with the “s’moreo” that it would surely be a very special idea.
Months passed. I never had a chance to make any s’moreos, s’moreo cake, s’moreo milkshake, or any of the other random ideas I had to use the word “s’moreo” in a dessert creation. I just never semed to have enough time, or remember it when I did have the time. Until today. The epic day when I finally fulfilled my destiny to create and publish the s’moreo shake. By now I was a little bored of the idea of just chocolate sandwich cookies and marshmallows, so I threw in cheesecake flavor. Plus some strawberries to go with the cheesecake theme. Nutella got in there just because who doesn’t like nutella in a dessert?
Prepare for something amazing, world. You will all end up trying a s’moreo cheesecake shake, whether because you know it will be good or because all your friends pressure you into trying it. And then you will be hooked on the delicious, fun awesomeness. I expect eventually the word s’moreo will get into the dictionary, and my computer will stop putting a red underline under the word s’moreo every time I type it.
I’m not even going to look up “s’moreo” and see if anyone else has already come up with it. I’m sure someone has, because there’s really nothing completely new under the sun. And that would just kill my excitement right now. So if you or someone you know has already come up with s’moreos, great job, you are a genius, but please just indulge me and pretend you think I’m the genius here. Thank you for your understanding of my madness. Now, let the s’moreo party begin! Mwah-ha-ha!!!
