This weekend, the most amazing thing happened! I’ve been waiting my whole life for something as spectacular as what occurred on Saturday night. It was as if the clouds parted and God himself came down from heavens and blessed me with good fortune. “What happened?” you ask. “Did you win the Power Ball, or Mega Millions? Did someone offer to publish one of your books? Did the Milwaukee Brewers call and ask you to be their bullpen catcher this season?
No. None of those compare to the life changing event that occurred. My favorite place in the universe, Scoop ‘deVille, has a sign outside that read, and I quote, “Free Scoop of Ice Cream if your name is…. DAVID.”
My first name is David! I even showed them my ID after I strutted in the store. I was like, “Check this, Ice Cream Lady. Now give me my free scoop!” That cookies and cream ice cream in the vanilla waffle cone tasted like sweet victory.
