We were doing a bit of traveling and looking for some fun for the family. Two hours from home, while taking in some attractions, we got a hot tip on some ice cream. I have a weakness for ice cream. Who am I kidding, I have many weaknesses. Allegedly there was an ice cream store that was “kicking off summer” with free scoops. The catch was that it was only at a limited time on a limited day, so we got in line. My love for ice cream is only equaled by my hatred of waiting in line. I will admit that I got grumpy. I was confident that the line would take forever. No ice cream in the world is worth a two-hour wait. I am so glad that I was outvoted and that my wife (the math teacher) is much better at doing line-to-time estimations. The doors opened at 7:00 on the nose. Coincidentally, within twenty minutes I had ice cream on my nose. Excited employees ran out like rock stars. The crowd cheered. Everyone chanted, “Ice cream! Ice cream!” It was glorious. There were no politics, no disagreements. We were all united by the joy of free ice cream. It was a truly pure occasion. The “Brown Butter Almond Brittle” was glorious. The “Darkest Chocolate” was everything you would expect. If you had to pay for a scoop, the “Wildberry Lavender” would be an experience worth every penny. Thanks to everyone at Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream. It was an evening that we will remember for a long time.
