He Reads My Blog!

Paul, walking in from work: I take it my ice-cream didn’t survive the day?

Me: Hmm? What do you mean?

Paul: You know.

Me: Well, it had been too long.

Paul, smiling: Too long since you’d eaten ice-cream?

    I think he should have brought home another pint of Ben and Jerry’s for you, seeing as how all the ice cream had been depleted.

    Excellent point, Lassie!

  3. I love it!

    I am tempted to finish our tub off before tomorrow!!

    I will miss you. I am giving up internet (email only) for Lent. My hubby says impossible. I say giving up a food while I am this pregnant is more impossible. Take care:)

  4. I always get a “Conscience Zinger” everytime I dive into a Ben&Jerry’s tub of chocolate chip cookie dough. Not for the calories, but any support it might give to Planned Parenthood. It usually remains a Zinger and nothing more comes from it. Mmmm.

  5. Yikes.. I didn’t know that about B&J’s… well, Blue Bell makes a mean vanilla. mg

  6. Rachel Swenson Balducci says:

    A friend of mine recently did some research on the issue of Ben&Jerry’s and Planned Parenthood and found that they do not give money to support abortion.

  7. Ok, conscience clear, now keep enjoying the B+J. One funny story … a coupleof years ago we had two priests in our parish at the same time, whose names were, coincidentally, Fr Ben and Fr Jerry. I don’t believe we organized anything ice-cream related in their honor though …

  8. Wow. Moral dilemma just disappears in a flash. Now if only I could apply that same logic in my pastoral ministry. (races off to buy more ice cream)
