Shaken Not Stirred

business cartoon

Goodness knows that just about everything has been done with the in/out bin, but I like to challenge myself to come up with something new now and again just to keep the ol’ noggin running smoothly.

Normally I begin by looking for pairs of words that work together: research and development, hot and cold, sweet and sour…

I don’t remember exactly how I came upon the “shaken, not stirred” Bond thing, and for a while the baskets were filled with martini glasses instead of paperwork, but it felt like something that hadn’t been done before and it made me laugh. Mission accomplished.

    Mark: Do you like the Martini drink? I have created a drink with the name, Persian Lime Martin(i). I think you could mix the drink both stirred and shaken! 😉
