Summer ala Mode ☀️

3

Summer just wouldn’t be summer without ice cream. Which puts this frozen treat in popular demand.

So then, should you go out for ice cream?

Before you do, you should know the risks.

Risks?

IMG_0828

Uh, yeah.

Racing the neighborhood kids to the ice cream truck? Not a good idea. Those kids are hungry. Aggressive. And probably faster than you.

A walk in the park? Not so much. Combine heat and gravity and you have a tragic cone decapitation on your hands. Er, on the ground.

Ye old ice cream parlor. Surely, that’s safe? Until your cone self combusts.

Well then, how about a treat right outside the comfort of your own home? 

Weather forecast, cloudy with a chance of soccer balls.

And don’t forget about all of the ice cream predators lurking out there. 

Man’s best friend? Not when ice cream is involved.

Gentle giants, not when their tongue is bigger than your head.

Let’s face it, ice cream can drive even the most motherly of creatures to a life of crime.

You’re Going to Need a Bigger Spoon

When you learn that it’s Chocolate Ice Cream Day, a plain scoop of ice cream just won’t do.
