I don't know if you guys remember the song "Milkshake" by the artist Kelis, but it was an extremely popular pop song several years ago that included the lyrics: "My milkshake brings all the boys to the yard." It essentially taught the teenage me and all my friends that milkshakes were what attracted men. Alright, alright, I'm listening. Go on.

Although I haven't listened to that song in a while, the lyrics have stuck with me. They've inspired me, budding future nurse and scientist, to do an experiment.

I am going to put a milkshake in my yard and see how many males are attracted to it. I assume it's like bait to them: they cannot resist the sweet frothy goodness that is blended ice cream, ice, and milk. I wonder if this is what the thrill of the hunt feels like. What poor helpless victims will fall prey to my evil scientific plan?!

Of course, like any scientist, I will have to ask the probing questions. Does milkshake flavor matter (are more men attracted to chocolate versus vanilla? Is strawberry a deterrent or an incentive)? I will have to ask if the use of whipped cream on top of the milkshake offers any further scientific data. And does the milkshake require a straw? What if the males are lactose intolerant? What does it all mean?! WHY DIDN'T THE SONG MAKE THIS INFORMATION APPARENT?

I will keep you all updated on my progress. Day One, it begins.

(This post was total sarcasm for anyone who remembers who obnoxious and overplayed that song was). ;)
