I also love real conversations. The people in my life say some pretty funny and ridiculous things. Who knew that planning for an ice cream party would be so difficult...
When I asked Melissa what her favorite flavor was, she responded with pistachio. Um, is that anyone's favorite flavor? Courtney and I were horrified:
C + H: "WHAT???!!!"
M: "Umm, it's good!"
C + H: "NO."
M: "Okay, well maybe cookie dough..."
M: "But I don't really like ice cream, I like frozen yogurt."
Okay, so cookie dough flavored froyo. One down.
H: "Courtney, what's your favorite flavor of ice cream?"
C: "Anything with a vanilla base."
C: "Anything as long as it doesn't have a chocolate base."
C: "Like rocky road maybe."
H: "Um, okay."
C: "Or maybe something fruity because it will be in the afternoon."
Okay, so nothing with a "chocolate base" and it should probably be fruity.
H: "Andrew, what's your favorite flavor of ice cream?"
A: "The kind in my tummy."
Completely unhelpful. Followed by.....
A: "Actually, anything with chocolate."
Okay, so the direct opposite of what Courtney wants.
H: "Darrell, what kind of ice cream do you like?"
D: "I'll eat anything. Not choosey."
H: "You guys are the worst. Everyone gave me the worst answer ever. I feel like I should come back with black licorice flavor just to spite you all!"
D: "Ok, I don't do the black licorice."
H: "THAT'S NOT EVEN A FLAVOR!!"
In the end, I'm sorry to report that we DIDN'T EVEN END UP HAVING AN ICE CREAM PARTY. Day ruined. (Not really.)
