Childhood Memories: Soft Serve Ice Cream
There are certain foods which trigger memories. Soft serve ice cream is one of those things. Recently we stopped at an old dairy bar in Elizabeth City. As I was sitting there trying to keep up with my rapidly melting ice cream in the relentless North Carolina summer, childhood memories were triggered.
As a kid, my Dad and I would often spend Friday evenings together while Mom had a night off with her girlfriends. Dad and I would usually head out for pizza then over the local Dairy Queen for soft serve. It was always a hard choice: chocolate jimmies or chocolate dip. The flavor was always vanilla. We’d just sit there trying to keep up with our ice creams in the hot summer’s night. I don’t remember if we talked about anything. I’m sure we did.
A nice way to spend a summer’s evening. And a nice memory.
