Ode to Ice Cream

Since today is Ice Cream and Violins Day (at least according to Tara...and a few other not as interesting spots on the webs) I thought it would be an appropriate time for me to express my deep appreciation for ice cream. It isn't that I don't also appreciate violins. I guess, just not in that way. Can we just be friends, violins?

Ice cream is my go-to choice if I feel I would like to treat myself in a food-y kind of way. Cake, pie, cookies, meh. Okay, you've seen me, clearly I don't shun these things! But none of them come close to the creamy pleasures of ice cream. Even then, there are a great many flavors that leave me cold, so to speak. If the word "chocolate" appears somewhere in the name, well, then I snap to attention. Chocolate ice cream is where it's at. If it is, say, chocolate chocolate chunk it is even better! Hey, throw some chocolate syrup on there and I am practically weak with desire. Yeah, that is kind of tragic, but that doesn't make it any less true.
Here you go. Have some ice cream on me! Or, no...well, okay, if you want...

I prefer mine in the form of a chocolate, malted milk shake. Extra, thick, extra chocolate, and extra malt.

I used to buy a brand of ice cream called Mrs. Smiths or something like that, and there was a chocolate almond flavor. That was my favorite ice cream, because one mouthful of chocolate ice cream held two or three whole almonds! I would just let the ice cream melt and then eat the almonds. Very, very good stuff.

I like chocolate and ice cream - just not together.
