Sorry if that was a spoiler for anyone who hasn't watched the third season of a five season show that ended two years ago. You maybe should have considered watching it by now? Just throwing that out there. So, cheese, amirite??
Seriously. Probably close to a month ago I was shopping and my store had this cheese called La Tur on sale. I looked at it and was like yes that looks creamy and fatty and really what more can someone want from a cheese?
This is what Murray's, a cheese shop I assume I would love if I ever went there, has to say about it:
From the great wine region of Piemonte comes La Tur: a dense, creamy blend of pasteurized cow, goat and sheep milk. Runny and oozing around the perimeter with a moist, cakey, palette-coating paste, its flavor is earthy and full, with a lingering lactic tang. The effect is like ice cream served from a warm scoop: decadent and melting from the outside in.
ICE CREAM. WARM SCOOP.
So, I bought it weeks ago and then I put it in the drawer of my new refrigerator that I designated the cheese drawer. It comes in a cute round little plastic container, and I think it rolled? Anyway it ended up at the back and I kept reaching for other cheese instead and boom, it's a month later and my La Tur is untouched. Until now.
Because I ate half of it directly from a knife.
I don't think it's silly when people say that wine is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy. Ok, I mean, it's sort of silly, but it's meant to be silly. But when you (ok, I) think about it, you (I) have to respect the science-by-experimentation that led to cheese and wine and beer. Yes, penicillin is badass. (I'm not sure I've ever had penicillin. As an adult I've only ever been prescribed ciprofloxacin and amoxicillin. Does that make it clear that I've been prescribed antibiotics for UTIs? I have. The urinary tract is too close to the vagina, guys. If God really wanted us to be happy maybe those two things should have been spread out a little bit.) But penicillin is for life. Wine and cheese and beer are for fun!
I think this might be obvious week here on the blog. It's ok. Mercury is in retrograde and according to an internet hole I went down today that means communication is going to be rough until the end of the month. It's best to stick to things people already know and agree with during this time (again, according to the scary internet hole of astrology).
So in summary. Mercury moving backwards, bad. Wine and cheese and beer, good. Antibiotics, unnecessary in some cases if we'd just been designed a little better.
