Happy birthday!  The Oreo cookie turns 100 years old today. The Oreo cookie has been near and dear to my heart for as long as I can remember. Why, when my mother was breastfeeding me I looked up at her and asked, “You got any Oreos to go with this milk?” That’s how much I love them.

In my public speaking class in high school when we had to demonstrate a particular talent I demonstrated how the ways one can eat an Oreo. I showed how to eat it by first separating it (which more women than men do.) I showed how to eat it whole (which more men than women do.) I demonstrated how to separate it and then scrape the filling from one side and pile it on the other. One classmate cried when I did this. I showed how to dunk the cookie in milk and eat it. Normally, I never do this, but I wanted an A in the course. So, I sat in front of the class with all eyes on me doing what I would normally do at home. I find it ironic that I got an A in my public speaking class for which I did a lot of eating and very little talking. So, my thanks to the Oreo and here’s hoping you’re around for 100 more.
