oreos and milkI like to think you can tell a lot about a person by how she eats an Oreo cookie.

Take me, for example: I eat the cream-filled chocolate cookies the exact same way every time. First, I will only ever eat two Oreos in one sitting—never more, never less. Second, there is an exact science to the cookie consumption: I twist apart the cookie, nibble out the cream center, eat the chocolate halves, repeat. The process is tidy, orderly, some would say anal—sort of like myself. Oh, and there's absolutely no milk involved, because I detest all things soggy...
