Why is it?

We went to dinner after church services this morning,   Food service was S–L–O–W to say the least.  We didn’t get to eat until almost 2PM.  The food was good, just when you’re hungry, it’s hard to wait.   Ernie’s meal came with dessert (which he declined), so he wanted to stop at the DQ for a dipped cone.

Last time we had dipped cones, we had the biggest mess imaginable from head to toe and all points in between.  It’s too hot to eat a dipped cone in the van, lol.    Ok, so knowing this, we stopped and got small chocolate dipped cones today….and a large handful of napkins.  Thought we’d made it home unmarked, WRONG.  Fortunately,  it wasn’t much of a mess this time.  I did need to do a wash job on my seatbelt, but it’s all okay.

There is just something about a chocolate dipped cone that encourages messiness!  It’s impossible to eat them in a hot car without having drips when it’s over 95 degrees outside.  Why do we not learn from our mistakes?

  1. We learn we are just willing to pay the price. next time take a couple of towels to use as bibs and a couple of wet wash clothes in zippies. that’s what I do when I know I going out for something messy like BBQ or dipped cones.
