3. Planning your entire week around when you'll get your Shamrock Shake.

6. Then the Shamrock Shake is in your hand and all is right. But you want to savor it. You want to make it last. So you try to delay your gratification. You can wait until you're out of the drive-thru before you take the first sip, right?
