This is just a short post to give a shout out to our friend Steve Little. Today at lunch, when the waitress took our drink orders, Michele asked for hot chocolate. It's getting to be fall here in Wisconsin, so hot drinks are common requests. She said, "I'm not sure if we have hot chocolate, but I'll check." She came back a few minutes later and said no, she was sorry, but the restaurant wasn't offering hot chocolate, yet. That's a seasonal drink, and they're still serving summer drinks. After she left, we all turned to each other and said "Milkshake Moment." Here's why.
