Treat

Damon and I just walked down to Baskin Robbins to treat ourselves to a heat-defying treat.

I see a poster featuring special summer sundaes and say:
I’ll have the peanut butter pie sundae

Guy behind the counter: What kind of ice cream do you want?

Me: Um, doesn’t it come with peanut butter ice cream?

G: It comes with any kind you want.

M: Do you have peanut butter ice cream?

G: No

M: What else comes on that sundae?

G: Whatever topping you want, plus whipped cream, walnuts and a cherry.

M: Walnuts?

G: Yeah

M: So, I can order my peanut butter pie sundae with strawberry ice cream and hot fudge?

G: Yeah

M: And walnuts, whipped cream and a cherry. Anything else?

G: No, that’s it.

M: Okay, that’s what I’ll have then.

      • Did you know that Daniel P is in NY now? He’s working with the Wooster Group and living in Brooklyn I believe.

      • I did know that, although I haven’t seen him. I do keep an eye out, as it’s funny how many people you catch on the street. We ran into Pete near Central Park last spring.
