It’s National Ice Cream Day . . . and we got the party started a day early!

Wikipedia ~ Ice Cream Sandwich (in Public Domain)

At Snooty’s Birthday Bash, Blue Bell Ice Cream gave away FREE ice cream to attendees ~ ice cream sandwiches, fudgicles, creamsicles, and krunch pops.

We indulged.

Twice.

Each.

Later in the day, we stopped by Fresh Market to shop for a birthday gift for our neighbor who is turning 90!

I’ve never been to a 90th birthday party before.  If I get any tips on longevity and living large, I’ll pass them along.

Anyway, while at the Fresh Market, we noticed the Taste of Summer samples being given away ~ gourmet burgers, broccoli-raisin slaw, crab dip on crispy crostini, cookies, and . . . chocolate hazelnut gelato!

Hello!
Gel~A~To!
Make mine a double!

Aah . . . that’s better!

What’s your favorite flavor of ice cream?  Recent research suggests that our flavor preferences may be tied in with our personalities:

* Chocolate => dramatic, lively, charming, flirtatious, seductive, and gullible.
* Mint Chocolate Chip => argumentative, frugal, and cautious.
* Jamoca => scrupulous, conscientious, and a moral perfectionist.

Tree-Frog-PerchedIf I had one wish . . .

And was precluded the option of wishing for more wishes.

If I had one wish . . .

And it had to be “personal” not some global wish for “world peace.”

If I had one wish . . .

Just for me.

I would wish for a good night’s sleep.
Every night.

Aah . . . that’s better!

What?  Did you really think I was going to wish for a frog prince?  What on earth gave you that idea?  

Now, how about you?  If you had just one wish . . . how would you spend it?
