Th-though I t-think I would n-n-need a c-couple of these n-novelty m-mini ice c-cweams to f-f-fill me up!
Today we see a group of people in line at a local ice cream shop. Well, we see two people; the rest are lined up outside and the line goes around the corner! It seems this little shop is quite popular. They sell novelty mini ice creams. And people seem to just love them! Let’s take a closer look, shall we?
Sprocket: I can’t believe how long we’ve been waiting in line.
Petunia: I know! But we’ve finally made it to the front!!
Sprocket: This will be so good after spending all day doing flight exercises!
Petunia: It sure will! Do you want me to just order yours when I order mine? We’ll save some time that way.
Sprocket: Sure, that works! If you don’t mind paying this time too, next time will be on me!
Petunia: Sounds like a plan!!
It looks like this two pilots are trying to wind down after a busy day of flight exercises. I can imagine that would make for a long day. I bet some ice cream will be wonderful for them!
Stormy: Hello! Welcome to our shop! What flavor ice cream can I get you today? As you can see, we have many toppings to choose from!
Petunia: Hello!! Could I please get a bowl of vanilla with hot fudge? And a double scoop for my friend here?
Stormy: What flavors for your scoops, sir?
Sprocket: Stwawberry and mango pwease!
Stormy: Right away!
Petunia pays for the ice cream and now it’s just the wait! It’s not long before the shopkeeper, Stormy has a cone ready.
Stormy: Here’s your double scoop. I’ll have your bowl momentarily. I’m just warming up some fresh hot fudge for you!
Soon the two friends both have an ice cream. And, if you’ll take a look with me, it looks delightful!!
Sprocket: This mini ice creams are always so tasty!
Petunia: They sure are!! And surprisingly filling for their small size!
Sprocket: Mhmm!! Maybe we should take ours to go. We can go for a walk in the park while we eat!
Petunia: That sounds like fun!
Stormy: You two have a great day now!
Sprocket and Petunia: Thank you!!
As the two friends leave, we see a family of three come in. A mom, a dad, and a son. Something tells me he’s most looking forward to some ice cream! Let’s see how it goes for them.
Mama Margaret: Marcelo, you’ve been on such good behavior lately. Your father and I are very proud of you.
Papa Chip: That’s right, son. You’ve been very helpful with chores around the house and helping the neighbors. So we feel you really deserve a nice treat. Today, you can order anything you want off the menu.
Marcelo: Really?? Groovy dude!! Thank you mommy and daddy!!
Oh my! Helping with chores and helping the neighbors? This lad certainly deserves an ice cream! I was never the best at getting my chores done when I was his age, much less helping the neighbors. But…ahem….enough about that. Let’s see what this cute little family is getting today.
Papa Chip: Well, Marcelo, do you know what you’d like?
Marcelo: I sure do!! Could I pwease get a double scoop? One scoop raspberry and one blueberry please?
Mama: Margaret: That sounds like a lovely choice!
Marcelo: What are you going to get, mommy?
Mama Margaret: Oh, I think you father and I will get our usual.
Papa Chip: A bowl of cherry vanilla covered in strawberry sauce?
Mama Margaret: Exactly! I’ll be right back, boys.
It looks like Marcelo and Papa Chip will have to wait just a bit before digging into their delicious treat. But, as we’ve seen, it’ll surely be worth the wait!
Stormy: Hello, ma’am, how may I help you today?
Mama Margaret: Hello, dear. May I please get a bowl of cherry vanilla, with some strawberry sauce? And a double scoop, one scoop raspberry and one blueberry, please.
Stormy: Coming right up! You’re in luck too! I’ve just finished making a fresh batch of strawberry sauce!
Mama Margaret: Oh, I didn’t realize you made the sauce in house!
Stormy: Oh yes! All of sauce is made in house, as well as our ice cream!
Mama Margaret: That’s lovely, dear! No wonder you do so well! The family all love it here!
Stormy: Well, thank you! It’s always wonderful to hear that! And, here’s your order! Enjoy!
Mama Margaret: Here we go, boys! A double scoop for dear Marcelo and a bowl of cherry vanilla for us!
Papa Chip: With strawberry sauce?
Mama Margaret: Of course, dear! Teehee!
Marcelo: Thank you, mommy and daddy!!
Mama Margaret: You’re welcome, dear.
Papa Chip: You earned this! I hope you enjoy it!
And with that, the family leaves. I’m sure everyone else in line is just waiting for their turn to get a delicious treat! Speaking of which, where did I put my wallet? I have some…things…to take care of.
