I wrote an exam on concurrency this morning and straight after that we went to La Pat to enjoy a tall {nice and cool!} glass of fresh ice cold OJ.

I remember reading somewhere that there’s nothing like the taste of a good strong shot of orange juice to wash the taste of slack-jawed idiot out of your mouth. It’s amazing how citrus has that effect. And the best part is that it works! Try it. Next time you fail a module flat on your face, have some OJ. Next time you embarrass yourself so badly, you hope the earth will swallow you up from beneath you, have some OJ. Next time you find yourself having sat programming at a PC for 5 hours looking for a bug which turned out to be a missing semi-colon, have some OJ. Next time you leave the TV remote control in the bathroom after a quick trip there, have some OJ.

Really. It just makes everything better again. It might have something to do with the brutal sensation of slick sour goodness slicing down your throat. Like it’s a kind of punishment you give yourself but a treat at the same time. We don’t care. All we know is OJ makes life great.
