In my last post I was pulling a Braggedy Ann about Utah being the happiest place on Earth. I'm sorry, but I refuse to make apologies for my false pride because it feels like just yesterday we were accused of being the most depressed state.
(Does that make us bi-polar?)
Anyways, I'm enjoying the high!
In my last post I also mentioned that I was going to do a little googling to see if Utah uses more superlatives than other states. Unfortunately, if you can believe it, there's never been a study done on superlative usage.
There have been other, equally important studies done, however. I found one important study by a BYU-P Professor, who shall remain nameless (because name dropping about BYU-P gets you in trouble), but you can find the study on the BYU-P home page if you look for the headline: "Lemon-scented windex makes people more virtuous."
This nameless BYU-P Professor concludes that clean smells unconsciously promote moral behavior and that people in rooms freshly spritzed with citrus Windex were more fair and generous than people in normal smelling rooms. She is encouraging companies to start pumping clean smells into their offices to encourage more ethical behavior.
What a good idea. I've decided to pour Windex into my daughter's perfume bottles when she starts dating.
(You can plagiarize my idea if you want. Just give me credit when your kids get married in the temple, k.)
And if my Dumb and Dumber cooking blog project doesn't make me rich and famous I might start my own line of Crash Cologne. I will call it Parfumeur a la High Road, (written in cursive and said with a french accent).
But back to superlatives . . . I'm no expert on the matter, but I've got ears, so I'm going to go out on a limb and say that Utah is not only the most superlative state in the union, it is the most superlative state EVER!
We KNOW how to use superlatives, baby! If you don't believe me, watch Good Things Utah.
Good Things Utah is a show hosted by four stinkin' hottest, uber enthusiasticest, hippest women on speed that share with the rest of us all the glimmery, shimmery, glossy, glitzy, frosty, sparkly things about Utah. They tell us how to have a rock star bum and how to be a hipster and how to get that WOW factor.
Everything they say and do is soooo cute. And soooo awesome. And soooo FABULOUS! (Or FAB for short.)
And they lub lub lub chocolate.
Surprisingly, one of the good/better/best things about Utah is their chocolate. Move over Madagascar because in Utah chocolate is like fine wine.
I did not know that.
I also did not know that Utah is killing it in the world of chocolate shows. In other words, the best chocolate is coming from Utah.
Oops, do I sound like Braggedy Ann again?
But seriously, I watched the ambassador of chocolate give samples of Utah chocolate to one of the hipster hosts with the rockstar bum and she said it was the most leathery, smoky citrusy, cheesy chocolate ever.
And I believe her (at least the citrusy part).
So bottom line, once again we're at the top. And you know what? It ain't that lonely at the top.
(Although just between you and me . . . not to be rude, it's all well and fab at the top, but . . . sometimes I feel like . . . something's missing. And as John Mayer would say, "I don't know what it is." )
