The Little Things
I usually buy the same groceries month after month. I eat the same things too...spaghetti, chicken alfredo, quesadillas, pizza. Occasionally I'll buy something extra on a whim. This month it was ice cream cones. It's funny how something so simple and cheap can make me smile. I'm sure it has to do with childhood memories. Ice cream on cones were rare and reserved for special occasions at my house. Sometimes we could convince my mom to stop at Mc Donald's after school for an ice cream cone. It helped that she really liked ice cream. :) When waffle cones and frozen yogurt stores appeared it had to be a birthday or something to get one of those! I remember the concentration and effort it took to keep those drips in check and finish it without the cone collapsing. Now I can buy my own cones and eat them every day, but I don't. I want them to stay special.
