Ice Cream, the Answer to Everything








As you may recall, it's not uncommon for members of my family to be easily distracted by media and come away with the entirely "wrong" marketing message. The brain-on-drugs becoming "oooh, let's eat scrambled eggs!" saga comes to mind. I have a new one.

While watching the Tour de France and seeing members of Team Rabobank (orange) and Team T-Mobile (pink) riding at the lead of the race:

Lady M: Mmmm, I feel like having rainbow sherbet.
SwingDaddy: You've got to blog about this.



In other news, Q has a new game he plays with his train set. He attaches a long line of cars to the engine and pushes them around the floor peacefully for a while before knocking them over and crying, "Help, help, help!" Then he retrieves the police car from the toy basket and uses it to push the train cars back in line. "Thank you, police car!" The police car goes back into the basket. Repeat.

ummm...we played that on Saturday. The train tipped over and I drove the police car and fire engine over and we helped the train get up. We spent a lot of time thanking things too. Thanks police car, thank you signal [flag] for letting us through. I didn't realize he would absorb that. If he says, "Here are the supplies for the Sudan refugees," you'll have to forgive me. We also played Iraq military convoy.

Ice cream, the answer to everything? That is practically my motto in life. That, and how beer is the other answer when the first one doesn't work.
