I love ice cream. I love it when a local business gets some national attention. And I also love that the Chocolate Shoppe actually has that printed not just on their delivery vans, but also on every carton (or at least, every one I’ve seen. And rest assured, it is an adequate sample size). Makes me chuckle every time. And luckily, the sweets & antiques store (yes, there is really such a thing tho it ain’t called that ) right around the corner keeps this delicious, creamy, oh-so-yummy, ice cream in stock. Pre-packaged pints and hand-dipped!
As a kid, I always felt like the only ice cream worth eating was regular chocolate but my tastes have matured as I’ve aged. Don’t get me wrong, it is still the go-to flavor and will always be number one….but now I’ll eat the whole carton rather than just 1/3 when Neapolitan is chosen as the flavor-of-the-week.
Usually I just speak gibberish when the need to pretend to not speak the same language as someone else arises….(and yeah, that happens a lot more than you’d think it does)…but this idea is even better.
Lodi Algoma! Omro Wausau Manawa! is gonna be my new go-to phrase
I ain’t actually lived in any of those particular cities, but it sounds a lot better (for these purposes) than “Sun Prairie, Madison, Columbus!”
May the fourth be with you.
And if you don’t understand what all the fuss is about, Slave Leia will be happy to explain:
CLEAN VERSION: Wanna know what kind of penguin you are? Quiz here. (For those keeping score, it says I’m a chinstrap penguin)
DIRTY VERSION: Such a wonderful day. When else would you read an article that flat-out says “Penguin poo can be incredibly useful.”?
’cause I’m all about offering choices…
HUGE mistake on first day of work.
Accidentally cussing on TV ain’t really a new thing, but what really captured my attention while reading his tweets on Buzzfeed is how classy the guy handled the aftermath. No excuses, no complaining, no hard feelings against the station.
I’ve always beleived that there is no shame in making a mistake…everyone does and will…but the real test is how you handle yourself afterwards.
His apologies and explanations seemed sincere, and it sounds like he is gonna dust himself off and try again elsewhere…and I bet he never ever forgets that a mic is always on!
Hope your holiday is a happy one
