Chillin' on a Monday

If you know me, you know where I was yesterday.
Hint:  Yesterday was free cone day at Dairy Queen.

Besides love for
God, my family, and my country…
I Love  ICE CREAM...especially soft serve.

 Through the years, I've turned PaulA into a lover…
(you know what I mean)
he's not as freakishly fixated.

I have a long "history" with ice cream
so yesterday, as I sat chillin' with my D.Q.
particular "ice cream story"
 that will remain frozen in time...
came to mind.

I call it:

"Ice, Ice, Baby."


Way back in the day...
when PaulA and I would drive home 
from visiting his parents...
we would ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS stop at the Dairy Queen 

It didn’t matter to me that PaulA didn't wanted ice cream…that was his loss.  

The DQ was a required stop…
even if we had just eaten a 
4 course meal complete with ala mode.

You see, 
I am a soft-serve junkie.

And so it goes...one day
PaulA and I had a disagreement. 
A minor spat, although no spitting was involved.

As we drove home in silence,  
I could see the DQ approaching….yup, DQ next stop. 

But instead of pulling into the parking lot...
PaulA drove right past it. 

Seeing, I am not any good at being SILENT…
I broke the ice with,  “I can’t believe you didn’t stop.”

PaulA, feigning ignorance, “Oh, you wanted me to stop?”
“Of course,” I said, 
“we ALWAYS stop…you know that.
He replied, “I’ll go back.”

So I continued ala childish behavior,
 “No, forget it. I don’t want it now.”

PaulA replied, “Well, I’m going back. I want a cone."
I bellowed, “Whaat? You never do.”

After turning the car around, 
PaulA came back from the D.Q.
holding a large vanilla cone.

As we continued down the road, 
PaulA loudly lapped his cone as he drove… 
“ahhh…this is so good…yumm.”

I am not sure what came over me at that moment. 
I didn’t even think about it. 

In one quick motion, I reached over, 
grabbed the cone out of his hand…
and threw it out my opened window. 

He looked at me….
I looked at him…. 
and we both cracked up laughing. 

Ice cream makes everyone chill.

"So good, it's riDQulous."
