Hand me an Oreo

2009 March 31

Sitting outside a truck stop waiting for traffic to die down before heading to Joliet, IL.

Stace (digging through boxes and cabinets): Do you remember where I put those Oreos yesterday?

Hedon: The Double Stuff ones?

Stace: Yes.

Hedon: Yeah, you put them in the cubby over here.

Stace: They’re not there now. I just looked.

Hedon: That’s because I ate them in the middle of the night.

Stace: Oh.

Hedon: And I drank the rest of the milk with them.

Stace: Oh, well, that’s okay. I’ll eat these other Oreos in the little box. They’re not Double Stuff, but they’ll do.

Hedon: Yeah, but like I said, I finished off the milk.

Stace: Ummhmm. So?

Hedon: Duh! You can’t eat Oreos if you don’t dunk them in milk.

Stace: I never dunk them in milk.

Hedon: What are you saying?

Stace: What I said. That I don’t dunk them. In fact, I don’t drink milk with them at all.

Hedon (clearly appalled): Are you serious? You don’t dunk them? That’s the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard!

Stace: I find that hard to believe.

Hedon: I tried eating an Oreo the other day without milk. It was disgusting. What’s wrong with you? Who the hell doesn’t dunk ‘em? That’s just ridiculous!

Stace: So I understand. The most ridiculous thing you’ve ever heard.

Hedon: God, it’s like I’ve never known you. Or have I always known it and just blocked it out because I couldn’t face the facts?

Stace: Probably the last one. Mmmm, this Oreo I’m eating is really good without milk. Yum!

Hedon: Quiet, woman! If there’s any way I’m gonna get through this, I need time to process the horrible truth.

Stace: <crunch-crunch>

    I’m not one for Oreo’s and Milk myself, either. Once I’ve pulled an Oreo out of its packaging, it tends to vanish in mere seconds. I always tell myself I’m going to enjoy this next one a little longer… and then poof… I find myself wondering if my stash of Oreos is also guarded by little theives that keep stealing them before I can take the time to enjoy them. Of course, the thieves must live between my teeth because that’s where I always find evidence that the Oreo cookie I had held in my fingers just seconds before did indeed exist!

    I never eat Oreo’s with milk either. I’m so with Stace on this one. Not only do I NOT eat them with milk, I actually think that milk would ruin the Oreo experience. I usually take them apart, eat the filling and then eat the cookie part. And, I was making Double Stuffs before Oreo was even making them!

    Oooh, I could really go for an Oreo right now! I bought a tube of Toll House Chocolate Chip cookies and made some in the truck the other night – then after we ran out, and I got lazy, I had a spoonful of cookie dough straight from the freezer. Ed found the evidence in the sink. Damn me not washing that spoon!

    Ok Ok

    You people have no Oreo taste at all. There’s obviously no hope for any of you.

    I love Oreos. Sorry to have to tell you that while I like them with milk I like them best with…water. I know, I know, that is sick and wrong, but it is a fact.

    I’m with Hedon on this, they simply must be dunked in milk.

    Hedon -> Save everyone! I know that everyone has their own tastes for Oreo’s, but really Oreo’s just HAVE to have milk! I mean, water?? really?? how…. unusual. I personally can’t enjoy an Oreo without milk myself.
