Afternoon came, and I was feeling hot, thirsty, and grumpy. I decided that what I really needed was some ice cream to make me feel better. In my opinion, ice cream is the great cure-all. It makes me happy; it makes me feel better....almost any problem can be eased with ice cream.
I went down to the building's little deli, and looked into their freezer. Empty. The deli's ownership changed, just a few months ago, and it occurred to me that I hadn't seen any ice cream since that switch! Just an empty freezer, day after day.
So I asked the guy: are you ever going to have ice cream? His response, "In a week or two. I know it's starting to get warm outside, but it's still winter...."
Still winter?! He won't sell me ice cream because it's still winter!!?? I told him, "I like to eat ice cream year round." He looked surprised by that fact. Perhaps this is what we get for having the store run by a man? Or is it just him? I don't know. I mean sure, I don't eat it outdoors when there's snow on the ground, but he doesn't think people eat ice cream inside when it's cold out? Weird.
I thought afterwards I should have asked him, "Are you still going to be serving coffee in the summertime?" Maybe then it would have made more sense to him.
So anyway, I am led to a poll, to see if I'm the only ice cream one who feels this way. Take my poll. Forward it to your friends. Let's solve this ice cream issue once and for all! (Oh and for what it's worth: I had ice cream for breakfast this morning. Yum!)
Do you eat ice cream in the winter?
Do you eat ice cream for breakfast?
Do you drink coffee in the summertime?
Please choose from the following:
What is your favorite kind/flavor of ice cream?
How often do you eat ice cream?
Finally...does gender influence ice cream preferences?
