so not this:
While Mr, Hotness and I were looking for our new home we drove all over North East New Jersey, South East New York, and South West Connecticut. While in Connecticut we happened upon a Friendy's. I think I scared poor Mr. Hot-stuff when I grabbed his arm, squealed in delight, and shouted, "Friendly's, Friendly's, pull in, pull in, we have to eat at Friendly's, I have to have a Reeses Pieces sundae, it's HUGE and I have to have one. Please, please, please!!!"
For some reason I have very intense reactions to childhood memories and poor Mr. Hotness is often caught unawares by them. In this case it was my memory of Friendly's, an ice cream shop and diner that was a special place to go when I lived in Saratoga, NY. They had this sundae that came in a ginormous goblet and try as one might, one could never finish one of those bad boys by themselves. Trust me, I tried many times. It was like an obsession with me. I had this dream that someday I would be able to order, eat, and finish the most yummy sundae of all time: The Friendly's five scoop Reeses Pieces sundae with fudge and peanut butter swirls and little chocolate sprinkles. Yes someday I would be the David who slays the mighty giant.
That day was upon me and it was time to try again...
And I won!
I won!Never give up on your dreams, people, because eventually you will be ready, and they will come true. And you will be so proud of yourself that you will go back and eat that dream again and again... oh yes, and again!
And then you will have to drink V8 for breakfast everyday for the next 20 years to recover from that dream.
But it will be soooooo worth it!
