Some of you that are younger than I may not remember those days long past when kids would actually go outside to play and not park themselves in front of the PS3, Wii, or whatever game system they, or get on-line, or sit on the couch or in their room texting the person in the next room. These were simpler, more enjoyable times. One of the things I most remember was the ice cream man.
The ice cream man would drive around neighborhoods and you could see kids' faves light up once they heard the music coming around the corner. Some, like myself, would quickly run inside to get money from their parents so that they could get something. I can remember those Mickey Mouse faces on a stick. --drools--
Now, all this would usually take place on weekends, during the summer, or after school. Well, here it is 11:20 on a school day and I just saw and heard him drive by. WTF?!? Are their stay at home moms outside playing or something? Or is this some kind of cruel teasing for the elementary kids who are no doubt at recess right now? Perhaps bad timing?
Whatever the case, now I want to go chase him down and get some ice cream...lol Good to know that they still exist, though.
