Claire, Yogurt Mountain, and Return of the Mack.

I love Claire.
We've been friends for as long as I can remember and everytime we hang out I'm reminded why we ARE friends. We're as different as night and day. She's the quirky one, which I find humorous, and I'm so completely opposite, that it drives her crazy.
I'm spending some time with her in Birmingham (very overdue!), and while spending time with her, it's so easy to remember the reasons why I love her the most.
Claire and I like to--well--indulge in whatever (and whenever!) we want. Claire introduced me to "Yogurt Mountain" today. Ever heard of it? Perhaps you recall my love of TCBY. In my opinion, it doesn't get better than filling a cup with non fat yogurt and then loading it with as many fatty toppings as you'd like. Ahh... Heaven.
Anyway, Yogurt Mountain is very similar to TCBY, only with Y.M., you're in complete control. You don't have to worry about not getting the "right amount of topping," "not enough yogurt," etc...
You go in, get a cup, and fill it with whatever and however much you'd like. The flavors and toppings are endless, my friends. It really is very dangerous.
Starkville never needs to open one of these stores, because it will only cause problems for me (both for my weight and for my wallet).
And I wish I could say that Claire and I did not consume the following in one sitting, but well....that would be a complete lie.
...and no. I'm not going to tell you what I loaded my cup with. I'm just not.
I was able to see the beautiful school where Claire teaches, and I as I walked into this school, I was immediately greeted with "Return of the Mack" on a nearby radio (that's not a joke), which was only more confirmation to me that Claire is exactly where she's supposed to be.
I absolutely love this girl.
