Drinking a glass of cold water right after eating ice cream is like pure freezing cold mouth bliss. Your inside cheeks are frozen raw, your throat is cold and stiff, and your molars are wedged tightly with bits of nuts and chocolate.
So when you chug down that cold glass of water, it’s like an Arctic dam spilling into a sugary mineshaft. That water just feels so refreshing — like jumping into a bathtub of ice cubes, injecting Gatorade into your heart, or showering after a really, really long time.
And is it just me, or does the water seem to take away a bit of the guilt, too? Like you’re somehow balancing out the cold, fat lump of Cherry Garcia in the pit of your stomach with something healthy and calling it even.
Hey, works for me.
