The past few weeks have been beyond hectic for me and Mr. Potts. We're both super busy at work and dealing with a lot of stress with both of our jobs.
I was in Vermont last week for a quick trip and was so thankful to be home early Wednesday.
We were watching TV together on Thursday when I had a craving for chocolate milk. It doesn't happen often, but I keep a supply of chocolate syrup on hand for those times when the craving hits.
After I announced that I was going to have a glass Mr. Potts followed me into the kitchen and told me that he'd like a glass too. Both glasses ready, we sat back down to finish whichever show we were watching and I proceeded to drink my milk.
There isn't much in my life I don't do quickly. I eat my food quickly, I drink my coffee quickly in the mornings, when I'm in the gym, I want to get in and get out. The pattern is pretty clear to me.
Mr. Potts on the other hand, eats his dinner slowly. He is patient and never rushed.
So it should have been no surprise to me that after I had drained my glass, he had taken only a few sips. It was much like everything that we do.
He takes his time, he savors the moment, he enjoys the actions. I, on the other hand, have a tendency to rush through things. It is one thing that I know I do and that I would like to become more thoughtful about. I want to savor my experiences, even if it is just a glass of chocolate milk.
Something that I need to work on, for sure.
So what about you? Do you savor the experience or do you gulp it down?
How do you drink your chocolate milk?
