...once a week poetry treat for the young and the young at heart...
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!
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!
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
Healthy restorative... I knew it! Yeah!
Your last line made me smile! Ice cream cones are special -- tied to several traditions in my family.
The only thing better than a double ice cream cone... is a poem about a double ice cream cone! Yum!
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. =)
Having a cone with your grand-girls is a treat in itself, Linda! Thanks for sharing your "sweet" comment. =)
Thank you, Joy! I even gave you a shout out in the poem, "ice cream joy" - hee hee. =)
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! =)
Thank you, Irene! I hope your banana split hit the spot...mmm, now you've inspired me! =)
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! =)
Glad you enjoyed it, Alice! I think it is important to indulge once in a while, especially with family. =)
Thanks, Joe! Luckily this poem is a guilt-free treat. =)
Yum! Now I am longing for an ice cream cone...delicious cheating!
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!
Yes, I'll have one of those (I'm drooling all over my keyboard). Fun poem!
Thanks, Tara! I say go for it - ice cream is a necessary cheat some days. =)
Thank you, Mary Lee! Your comment hits the spot, just like an drippy ice cream cone. =)
Sending you a virtual cone, Violet! Sorry about your keyboard...sending you a napkin, too. =)
