ICE CREAM MAN!

My uncle Justin has enjoyed a very interesting life over the course of which he has been a wedding/lounge singer, a real estate agent and an ice cream man. Now, on the surface it seems that being an ice cream man isn't that bad of a job. Everyone loves ice cream and making little kids happy, right? Well, not Justin. His favorite game was turning off the music and driving into a cul-de-sac, turning on the music full blast, and speeding out of the neighborhood as he flipped off the army of children he saw in the rear view mirror that were chasing him with crumpled, sweaty dollar bills in their chubby little hands. But hey, at least he got all the free ice cream sandwiches he could shove into the glove compartment of his VW Bug before they melted all over the AAA map on the way home, so it wasn't all bad.

  • That happened to me once- I was once one of those children who had to chase after an Ice-cream man... only to have him go faster after he saw me : )

    You should definitely learn to play chess! Maybe while you're over in the Ukraine you could start up a by-mail game with someone! : )
