I know I have fans out there that have been dying for me to do my first post. They have been checking daily and wondering what my first subject will be.
Will it be about Seth taking his shoes off at school because he loves me? (Yeah don’t quite get that one either, but I will take it!) Or about Tony and the fact that he can watch the same show about tornados over and over and over! It has gotten so bad we broke down and got a TV in the boy’s room! Yes I broke my own rules however one can only watch so many shows about tornados, the result is the same..destruction!
Well…..my first post is about me and my obsession with the two most wonderful men in the whole world, Ben and Jerry! I have been a huge fan of theirs since I had my first bite of Chocolate chip cookie Dough ice cream over 20 years ago, crap I am old!
I will never forget the first bite, PURE HEAVEN!! What I truly thought was THE BEST thing about it was you could eat right out of the container; it is a single serving right? Through out the years I have had my fair share of the their heavenly concoctions from Cherry Garcia, Chunky Monkey, Phsih Food, New York Super Fudge Chunk and the list goes on and on! Today something happened that HAS NEVER happened during my 20 year affair, it is so horrible that I must start from the beginning….
This afternoon after work I came home and announced to Seth that we were going to the grocery store. After about 30 minutes of chasing him down and bribing him with the car cart (anyone who has used these knows how much fun they are to control)I got him out the door.
I fill my cart with the necessities and head for the ice cream isle to get my fix. Seth decides he wants to pick it out. WHAT???? OH NO YOU DON’T!!! OK I am not that mean and I did not say that out loud, I let him choose. After reading all of them to him he decided on Mint Cookie, a flavor I have never tried. He throws it in the cart and we are on our merry way.
After dinner is over it is time for the special ice cream. I reach into the cupboard to grab 2 bowls and stop in my tracks, bowls? For Ben and Jerry’s? What? That is when it hit me! My affair is over, the cats out of the bag the kids are now going to ask for MY Ben and Jerry’s every time we go to the store, what I have done?
If you are getting the impression that I never share my Ben and Jerry’s you are correct, NEVER do I share! Didn’t I learn my lesson with Starbucks? How could I? Then the WORST PART OF IT ALL was to have to actually use an ice cream scoop and put it in 2 bowls, oh that killed me!!!
The boys enjoyed their precious ice cream and Seth went to bed. Then Tony and I grabbed the container and 2 spoons and finished it off right out of the container, the way the ice cream gods meant it to be!
