Overheard on Saturday Night

Cookies_n_creamScene One

Songbird: I need some ice cream. I don’t suppose you need sodas?

Pure Luck: No, I have plenty. And don’t we have ice cream? A big carton?

Songbird: That’s plain Chocolate. I don’t really like it. That’s why it was safe to buy it for The Princess. I don’t suppose you’d be willing to go to the 7-11 and get me some cookies and cream, would you? While I’m fixing your quesadillas?

Pure Luck: All right. But what if they don’t have what you want?

Songbird: They will. They always have some kind of cookies and cream. It just won’t be Ben and Jerry’s.

Scene Two

Pure Luck: I got you some ice cream, but they didn’t have what you wanted. They had about  20,000 different kinds in that cooler, but they didn’t have what you wanted there. No cookies and cream.

(He produces a carton of Ben and Jerry’s Chocolate Fudge Brownie.)

Songbird: Oh! They really didn’t have any?

Pure Luck: I looked all through the Ben and Jerry’s, and there was no cookies and cream.

  1. I believe your husband and my husband are related…. that sounds just like him.
    I am trying out Sage on Firefox right now. Pretty darn cool.
    Oh, I had Cherry Garcia for dessert tonight 🙂 yum

  2. I just tried SAge. Spent an hour adding feeds, and it doesn’t work! I must be doing something really obvious wrong! So, you want to come visit me and fix my computer?

  3. I don’t like chocolate ice cream either. I love chocolate, but chocolate ice cream just doesn’t say “CHOCOLATE” to me.
    Next time, you buy the ice cream & he makes the quesadillas.

  4. Oh, I looooove chocolate fudge ice cream- not B&J- can’t remember the brand? I know it when I see it! It’s a double fudge and chocolate syrup kind. Yummmmm. But I love Cookies and Cream too!

  5. How could the kind with Oreos be the kind you wanted…it didn’t have “cream” in the name. Now, if it said “Oreos and Cream”? Spot on!

  6. heheheheheeeee
    Its hard to know how to describe what you want from the store, isn’t it?! I’ve taken to writing my lists like this:
    Chocolate Chips – Dark or Semi-sweet chocolate, Nestle, yellow bag, 8 oz or 12 oz or 16 oz. (not milk chocolate – call if you run into a problem…)
