Let's Talk About Pictures: String Cheese

For our May special promotion we are going to take one photo each day and comment on it.  Sounds fun, doesn't it?
     OH MY GOD.  I love string cheese.  It's fantastic.  It's the food of the Gods if you are a sort of obese Midwestern guy.  Or a three-year old kid.  But I don't care.  I don't even know what kind of cheese it's made of, which will probably surprise all of you as much as it surprises me.  But that is probably because I don't care.  Not one bit.  It's delicious.  It's stringy.  I get to play with it while I eat it, which I can't do with mostaccholi and meat sauce.  And only sometimes with mashed potatoes. 
     My favorite kind of string cheese is most definitely smoked string cheese.  Admittedly, this is not for everyone.  For some people, in their mind, the same process that is used to make a kickass ham should really not be used to make cheese.  But I don't care.  Because it's like taking pure deliciousness and infusing it with another kind of pure deliciousness.  Oh man, it's heavenly.  Sometimes, I don't want the smoked kind.  Sometimes I want the original, normal kind.  And that's okay.  It's all okay.
    Hell yeah it's all okay.  String cheese is great for everything and everyone.  Unless of course you are lactose intolerant.  But it is good for you if you are a kid because they like it and can play with it.  It is good for you if you are a grown up because they like it and it's a healthy, perfectly proportioned snack.  Let's be honest, these things don't come in nine foot long sections.  If they did I would be there in a heartbeat.  And I would be gnawing on it from one end to the other like it is a long-ass noodle and I am either Lady or The Tramp.  And I would be able to meet whomever is munching on the other end, which would be super cool.  Super duper cool.  
     So string cheese can lead to romance, and marriage, and babies and white picket fences and the whole lot.  How many foods can do that?  I mean, try to get green peas to do that.  Or beef stroganoff.  Not gonna happen.  But it can happen with string cheese, which is so great it's both a play toy AND  food.  Which means it's a multi-tasker.  What more can you ask for?  Not much.  Except for some string cheese.  In any situation.
