Here's the ScoopBy Maggie Jun 16, 2010 9:53am
I have a sweet tooth.
Let me rephrase that: I have a mouth full of sweet teeth.
Itâ€™s a curse. Iâ€™ve been a total chocolate chaser for the majority of my life. Mom and Dad used to call me Cookie Monster, and if they counted memes as first words, I would have been credited with saying â€śom nom nomâ€ť before â€śDada.â€ť
But while I would jump through a ridiculous amount of hoops for a bite of a fresh-outta-the-oven chocolate-chip cookie, jumping through hoops doesnâ€™t even begin to describe the lengths I would go to for a good old-fashioned trip to the ice cream store.
When I lived in D.C. a few summers ago, my friends and I would frequent the local ice cream shops like it was our job. And it turned into sort of a tradition for our little clique. So every time our gaggle of girls gets together, we bee-line it to an ice cream stand and place our order. And, of course, because weâ€™re part of the Facebook, webutante generation, we always take pictures while weâ€™re there (my friends and I decided we could probably post an entire album of pictures that included nothing other than us stuffinâ€™ our pie holes with a double scoop).
And even though I think I might have tried every single ice cream combination under the sizzlinâ€™ summer sun, I still hesitate and stammer as I try to decide whether I want soft or hard ice cream.
What say you Sillystatters? Do you prefer soft-serve or scoop ice cream?
