Pipe Dream #59: To Tell My Sissy She’s a Sweetie

My sister worked with me for six weeks this summer. When I had nothing to do on the weekends, she would comfort me and take me out for ice cream. And when I say, “She took me out for ice cream,” I really meant, “I drove my car 40 minutes to the cutest little ice cream parlor that I had been wanting to show her and photograph for two years.” But it was still comforting and really excellently fun.

We went to a little place called “The Pearl” (obviously). Sidenote: I have been saying ‘obviously’ a lot. I can’t tell if this is a good thing or a bad thing. Ah well.

We walked in from a blisteringly hot day and were greeted with the delectable smell of homemade waffle cones.

Our eyes were dazzled by the vast assortment of hard candies. It was like being on the set of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory when that mildly creepy candy man sings songs in minor keys and pelts the pale children with sweets.

I salivated.

And then…

Ok. Yes please.

You for cute chocolate marshmallow sundae or unashamed messiness.

And you for cute model sister who takes me on dates that I love with my whole soul. Today, I’m loving on Wades and I don’t care who knows it.
