Ice Cream Tastes Better . . .

I’m feeling a little nostalgic and lone today. I haven’t given my daughter the Memorial Day she deserves as a child. Maybe next year. But, thanks to her, and the little tinkle of music coming down the street, I got to eat a strawberry shortcake and find some words to write (words that have avoided me all day):

 Ice cream tastes better
when it comes off an ice cream truck.

Fried Dough tastes better at a county fair.

Marshmallows taste better after a barbecue.

Ice cold lemonade tastes better after playing in the sun all day.

Everything tastes better in the memories of childhood.

    Agreed!

    My favorite ice cream memories include Good Humor Toasted Almond . . . and hand-cranked ice cream made in the back yard.

    My first taste of ice cream is still with me. I was old enough to appreciate the sweetness and amazed enough to wonder what it was.
    I didn’t care. It was good!

    Ice cream makes things better because it brings us back to childhood and it’s really bad for you 🙂

    Wonderful words–and all true–something I never thought about before–how the experience/moment can enhance the taste.

    I’m sure some food can taste worse depending on the situation as well.
