One flaming hot afternoon, I walked into an Ice Cream Parlour, licking my lips at the thought of that smooth, cold ice cream slipping down my tongue and quenching my thirst. The air conditioned room was a great relief to me, as I took a deep breath and closed my eyes.
I went up to the counter and stared at the millions of flavours just sitting there, waiting for me to eat them up.
"I'll have Raspberry Delight. No, Chocolate Supreme sounds better. But just look at how heavenly Strawberry Vanilla twist looks. Mango Munch will obviously be better. Or should I try Mint Chocolate Chip? Maybe Butterscotch Caramel Crunch will be perfect. But Rainbow Swirl would be so awesome! I think I should just go for Blueberry Cream. But Banana Bite just looks scrumptious!" I said, trying to decide.
The fat grumpy old man at the counter was getting really impatient, and so were the others in line. After having a taste of each of those flavours, I decided to settle for Violet Splash. It really was good, kind of like vanilla ice cream but with a hint of a sweet violet taste and completely purple with little chunks of chocolate in it.
So I paid the man and walked out the door, happily. I was actually waiting for the bus, but that was when I realized, I had taken so long, that the bus and come and gone and I would have to wait for the next one, which would come 45 minutes later, So I stood there licking my ice cream. I walked to the Ice Cream parlour, simply to check the time, but I tripped on something and SPLAT! My Ice cream lay there on the side walk, and there was still 30 minutes until the next bus. And I didn't have any more money. So from now on, I'll always LOOK where I'm going.
Hope you liked the post! Here's a challenge, I'll put one at the end of each post.
