A few days ago I was sitting on the couch and enjoying the fact that all my daycare Littles went home early. I’m not going to lie, I was pretty close to comatose and drool was starting to form. Suddenly I was propelled off the couch and towards the front door without any thought to what I was doing.
I could hear the ice cream truck.
For those of you who don’t live on my street (considering there are only 4 houses total I’m betting that’s most of you), the ice cream truck never actually drives on my street. He just does a drive by and gets himself put on my shank list. If you want ice cream you have to be quick, an attribute that I do no possess. Yet my love of ice cream is strong and I was very hungry.
I was incredible.
I haven’t run in years and frankly, I’m surprised at how very fast I can run when highly motivated. One of the neighbor kids was left in the dust and panting by the time he caught up to me at the truck. Sure, he’s only five, but he’s a very fast five-year-old.
Then came the best part of the entire incident. My little neighbor said to me “thanks for catching him for me.”
Yes, I caught him for you…
