I Scream, You Scream!

If you have already read this post, then you know that I'm not a real icecream fan. But even I scream for icecream when it's 31 Flavors for $.31! We didn't get there in time to go in with our friends and didn't want to wait in the line, so we just went to Rite Aid next door. The boys didn't care and since neither place has mint chocolate cookie, I wasn't heartbroken.


You should have seen how fast their toys dropped as soon as I said "let's go get icecream". They got so excited that it made me feel guilty that I never really take them to icecream. What kind of mom and I?

What kind of mom you are is: better than me! I had a friend call to tell me about 31cent cones and I STILL didn't take my kids!
And I think you mean "if you read this BLOG" since reading the post wouldn't let us know you don't like ice cream. (I'd make such a good editor for stuff like that!! I find it in every book I read!)

If you click on it, then you would know (that's the whole point of those Su!) And 'read' was meant to be read in past tense. Hopefully it's cleared up now. What's your fee per edited post?

I didn't even KNOW about the 31 cent deal! We went to Staples last night and saw about 100 people (seriously) outside of Baskin Robins. What kind of mom am I that I don't even know all the cool deals for kids!

I don't usually scream for ice cream either, but what a deal! That's actually about how much you pay for a scoop out here all the time, but polish scoops are usually the size of a ping pong ball (this is no exaggeration). And, you're a good mom! Imagine all those other mothers excited to save themselves some money saying, "Okay, kids, let's go get some ice cream!!" And their kids are like, "Ice cream? Again? Do we have to?"

Oh, and you should change your link color a bit. I was also sure you meant blog. Most of us don't run our cursor over what we are reading, so we wouldn't know that was a link, since the color is so similar to the regular text. And I think you're the only one who has responded to my poll about MY text (it was you, wasn't it?) So, we'll see. Maybe you need to up the contrast on your monitor, or dust off the screen! J/K!

Thanks for calling me about $.31 icecream! We TRIED to take the girls for a mutual treat - but the line was wrapped around the building for a 2 hr wait. No icecream is worth a 2 hr wait. Come on people!
