There are some experiences that just make you smile. There are memories that transport you to a moment of pure bliss.
The chimes of an ice cream truck can turn a 50 year old into a 5 year old. Soon, about 60 adults will be transformed into little kids once a week. We are about to be the enthusiastic hosts of a Mr. Ding-a-Ling truck every Wednesday or Thursday at 2 pm – just in time for an afternoon munchie attack.
I swear, the company’s name is Mr. Ding-a-Ling. The website reads: “I scream. You scream. We all scream for Mr. Ding-a-Ling.” Giggles ensued. But it made me think of other ice cream truck names…and the only one that comes to mind is Mr. Softie. At 10 you don’t realize just how wrong these names are. At 30 you wonder and then ponder all the dirty jokes you can make.
Either way, there is something pure that comes out of this – the fact that ice cream has the universal power to bring complete and total joy at any moment, any age, any weather and any situation.
Some say Mr. Ding-a-ling can also bring you a moment of bliss too…that is if you know how to ring his bell.
