SLURP-eeeeeeeee!!

This post is part of the monthly blog hop/therapy session known as the 
Insecure Writers Support Group, founded by the one and only, Alex J. Cavanaugh. If you're a writer, insecure, or just supportive of writers—insecure or not—please join us. It happens the first Wednesday of each month.
It would be sweet of you to visit at least a dozen or so new blogs and leave a comment. Your words will be appreciated.  Co-Hosts:
IWSG Day Question: How do you celebrate when you achieve a writing goal / finish a story?

How do I celebrate?  
Hmm? Let me slurp the ways...
Kahlua & cream. Ahhh! 
Cool and delicious! 
Or a nice glass of red wine with cheeze. Mmmm!
Or an ice cold beer with maybe pizza. Yum!
But wait!
CALORIE KIBOSH!
Before I can even reach for the Kahlua bottle...
My mind is calculating... 
How many calories in the Kahlua? 
And the cream? Yeesh! 
Then I calculate the wine with cheeze... 
Just as many calories...
Plus wine makes me sleepy...
And I don't want to be cheezy sleepy...
I want to celebrate.
So next it's beer...
Dos Equis amber to be exact... 
But I like to eat something when I drink a beer...
Like pizza... 
But I can ever eat just one slice...
So, how many frickin calories would that be?
Forget about it! 
Too many calories and carbs!
So what in the hell can I slurp to celebrate?
Wait...
I can smell it now...
Rich, hot, steamy and black...
COFFEE!
Coffee always beckons me in the a.m. to rise and write...
And when my eyeballs are bleary and red from writing...
Coffee gives me that just needed pick-me-up.
Ahhh!
Well, there you have it...
Guess I'm not that exciting of a celebrator...
But what about you?
How do you celebrate?
Got a favorite drink or brew?

Always,
Em-Musing

Love your way of celebrating :) I eat chocolates and desserts and do a small dance.

Heck with the calories! Give me the pizza and beer.

The thought of a nice foamy (w/ Reddi Whip!) is my reward for getting out of bed every day, ha, so I approve.

This post has me smiling from ear-to-ear. I feel the same way when I reach for a rice pudding cup. Is it worth it? Maybe I should eat that yogurt instead? Meh, rice pudding it is! haha

Love your ways to celebrate. I used to drink Black Russians. Never tried Kahlua and cream. Sounds yummy.
