Do you like string cheese?

I love it. Especially the mozzarella kind that is really firm

So you can pull off super fine strings

And the stick superstructure stays intact

Only a couple brands can pull it off

And of course my parents being ultra cheep always buy the store brand

Which is soggy

So when you try to grab to pull a string off you end up squishing the stick

Then its ruined

And I cry usually at that point

Then I get down on one knee raise my fist to the sky and yell out “what kind of god would allow such an abomination?”

And then I fall onto the floor in a fetal position and rock back and forth slowly until I’m all cried out or I fall asleep

Whichever comes first

Moral of the story is I love string cheesebut you gotta be prepared to drop the extra dime for the brand names or they can ruin my day

I love cheese sticks too but that’s a whole different animal
