Senior Citizen Cone

Two posts in one day is totally acceptable if you haven't posted in a few weeks. So there. Nah.

Today I have an ear infection, or so Sharon at Central Kentucky Primary Care tells me. That means I got to go to Dairy Queen with my grandparents and Dusty to eat after the doctor appointment. (Long story involving my grandparents being hypochondriacs.)

After a fulfilling meal of turkey club sandwhich and fries, we all still were lacking that one thing that put DQ on the map... why ice cream of course! The order was: 3 blizzards and a small vanilla cone for my papa.

Dirk: "No ma'am I'm sorry we don't."
Me: "Well ok...i'd like a not free small cone and 3 small blizzards."
