Yes, I’m still scarce around these parts. Still under deadline, brainpower maxed out, and unable to write a coherent blog post. However, I am popping in to promote a good cause. I always love a good cause, and especially when it involves ice cream on a hot (okay, well, somewhat warm) day.
Although I’m generally not a fan of fast food establishments (I normally eschew them as the realization of pure evil), and I don’t think their periodic good deeds erase their overall destructive power (still with me?), Dairy Queen’s Miracle Treat Day is pretty cool. Go get a Blizzard, and DQ gives $1 or more to your local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital. I know enough people with sick kids and babies right now that this seems like a pretty timely (read: urgent) cause.
I know, I’m a fitness instructor and I’m advocating ice cream. Stop the presses! No, really: occasional ice cream is part of a healthy lifestyle. What’s not healthy is declaring war on entire food groups because you hate body fat. I would normally recommend something a little less processed/mass-produced than DQ ice cream, but under the circumstances, I think we can all take one for the team, yes?
So, go get yourself a Blizzard and feel GOOD about it. Or, if you must, you can skip the Blizzard and just cut your hospital a cheque. But that’s not nearly as sort-of-not-really-subversive, nor is it as delicious.
