When you’re given a box of candy, don’t gulp it all down;
eat too much chocolate and you’ll make yourself sick;
And when you find a friend, don’t outwear your welcome;
show up at all hours and he’ll soon get fed up.
Today we did chores. These chores involved disturbing three and a half years of dust that have kicked my (apparent) dust allergies into high gear. Between bouts of sneezing and nose-blowing, I rub my intolerably itchy eyes and remind myself to consider dusting at least occasionally. Note to self: Never dusting is easy on the front end but worse on the back end, whenever that may be.
We also went to the Worcester Goodwill, the Worcester County Food Bank, my work, the CSA, and Roche Brothers. After all that driving around — and let me say, this Saturday it seemed like everybody had decided to take the same route we had — we rewarded ourselves with a final stop, this time at Uhlman’s ice cream.
There we splurged and shared a banana split.
Oh, my goodness.
Three scoops of ice cream — fudge ripple (supposedly, although we actually ended up with what I think was vanilla), vanilla, and strawberry — topped with hot fudge, whipped cream, strawberries, pineapple, and hot fudge. It was so delicious we spent the entire time raving about it. I doubt I’ve spent $7 more deliciously, possibly ever.
