I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice-cream…when I was growing up, that was a popular ditty.
For me, every day is an ice-cream day. I’ve always loved ice-cream.
When I was a little girl, I remember going to the park across the street with my best friend, Jane. Each of us would clutch a precious nickel in a little hand and eagerly await the Good Humor Man who would pedal by with the large freezer box attached to the front of his bike. My favorite was a toasted almond bar!
Years later, on summer evenings, we would sit outside, listening for the calliope sound of the ice-cream truck. You would hear children shouting, “Mommy, mommy, I need a quarter…the ice cream man is here!” My dad, who also loved ice cream, would ask me and my sister what we wanted and he would run out into the street as soon as the truck stopped so that he would be the first to give in his order.
These days, my husband lovingly provides me with a wonderful variety of exotic flavors…double fudge brownie, French silk, coffee with almonds and chocolate morsels…and I treat myself to a small dish of ice cream topped with a spoonful of whipped cream and seven almonds every evening…my reward at the end of a busy day.
