Let’s keep giving Coral a spin by trying to maximize engagement. (That is definitely the jinx’s cue, and surely something major like a signing will happen today.)
Ramble of the Day
I’m rambling hungry, and it’s been a while since I came up with a food topic, so I’ll ask the question: What’s your go-to snack, a snack that’s easy to grab or assemble and guaranteed to leave you some level of satisfied?
In an effort to provide an honest answer, I went to my kitchen for a snack in between writing the above paragraph and writing this one. It turns out that I wasn’t actually in the mood for my go-to, a granola bar or a banana. (I sometimes opt for other snacks when I’m willing to pair them with a cup of coffee.)
I instead went for some rosemary crackers, since I apparently like crackers again. I doubt it’ll become a new go-to, since I’m suddnely losing interest in dry foods. This could lead to a long ramble about how I pair food with drink, but that seems unnecessary since I have answered the question.
tl;dr: I asked a question about snacks and then tried an experiment that didn’t answer the question.
