I haven't had an ice cream cone in a long time! Can't have the carbs, can't have the gluten... sigh. Looking forward to a small DQ Blizzard in October for my birthday. One cheat day for carbs.

That picture certainly echoes the tale you have in words, too, Bridget. Wow. My 'cone' of choice is a tiny one from a local yogurt spot. The grand-girls order more, lucky girls!

Joy said...

Love the presentation--delicious.

I'm sending your link to my sister so she can enjoy your poem as well. We spent yesterday messaging back and forth about all the wonderful ice cream we wanted to eat--she was opting for rhubarb, lime, jalapeno and I was hoping to get some Coconut Willy (coconut with chunks of Needham candies). (I resisted but I'm not sure what she did.) By the way ice cream doesn't count as a "diet cheat" if the temperature is in the high 80s or above--it's just a healthy restorative!

Irene Latham said...

Ha! Love this. If ever there was a reason to break a diet, I'm pretty sure it's for ice cream. :) My husband and I love an ice cream shop called Bruster's where we always share a banana split made with the current flavors of the month. Your poem is urging me to do this TONIGHT. Thank you! xo

I love taking my kids for ice cream, even if I am jealous of their guiltless pleasure. If only I ran around for hours in the park. Then I might be able to have ice cream, too. :-D

Donna Smith said...

Healthy restorative... I knew it! Yeah!

Alice Nine said...

Your last line made me smile! Ice cream cones are special -- tied to several traditions in my family.

Joe Uhlik said...

The only thing better than a double ice cream cone... is a poem about a double ice cream cone! Yum!

Bridget Magee said...

Thanks for enjoying my sugar-free, carb-free poem today, Donna. Not quite the same as the real thing, but at least it is a guilt-free treat. =)

Bridget Magee said...

Having a cone with your grand-girls is a treat in itself, Linda! Thanks for sharing your "sweet" comment. =)

Bridget Magee said...

Thank you, Joy! I even gave you a shout out in the poem, "ice cream joy" - hee hee. =)

Bridget Magee said...

Thank you, Molly for sharing my poem with your sister. I love the unique flavors you both were craving. And I am embracing your temperature perspective of ice cream being a healthy restorative - in Tucson I'm entitled to a cone a day for four months straight! =)

Bridget Magee said...

Thank you, Irene! I hope your banana split hit the spot...mmm, now you've inspired me! =)

Bridget Magee said...

I hope you indulge with your kids once in a while, Brenda, both in the park and at the ice cream parlor. You deserve it! =)

Bridget Magee said...

Glad you enjoyed it, Alice! I think it is important to indulge once in a while, especially with family. =)

Bridget Magee said...

Thanks, Joe! Luckily this poem is a guilt-free treat. =)

Tara said...

Yum! Now I am longing for an ice cream cone...delicious cheating!

Mary Lee said...

I love your poem so much I could just eat it up! Really...that picture looks so creamy and cool, with your words sprinkled on just so...yum!

Violet N. said...

Yes, I'll have one of those (I'm drooling all over my keyboard). Fun poem!

Bridget Magee said...

Thanks, Tara! I say go for it - ice cream is a necessary cheat some days. =)

Bridget Magee said...

Thank you, Mary Lee! Your comment hits the spot, just like an drippy ice cream cone. =)

Bridget Magee said...

Sending you a virtual cone, Violet! Sorry about your keyboard...sending you a napkin, too. =)
