Thank you to Two Writing Teachers
for hosting the Slice of Life
We heard the announcement, we read the announcement, we cheered the announcement:
"Free ice cream cones at Dairy Queen on March 20-in honor of the first day of Spring!"
We piled into the new car and chit-chatted all the way to the Dairy Queen.
"Look at the line!" declared Kam.
Indeed, the line inside the local DQ was quite long. However, the drive thru was just right. So, we inched into the drive thru line. When we arrived at the order screen, Kevin proclaimed, "We'd like 4 vanilla cones..."
"Do you have four people in the car?" asked the lady.
"uh, yes." Kevin uttered in a gingerly yet surprised sort of way.
"Ok, pull around."
As we pulled up to the window, they handed us four vanilla ice cream cones...
We drove away smiling and enjoying our frosty dairy queen cones! All of us in conversation about the new shopping plaza, the snow day calculator and friends at school. Such fun together as a family of four. Happy with the fan food too.
