Last night I got up about 1 am, very hungry for something sweet.
There was a brand new carton of Haagen-Daaz strawberry in my freezer.
I never have ice cream, but this was New Year’s Eve.
(This is the very reason I never have ice cream in the house)
What the hey. I pulled it out, grabbed a spoon. Sat on the couch. In the dark.
Tried my damnedest to get a spoonful out.
I really wanted that strawberry ice cream.
Nothing doing. I poked and prodded. Couldn’t make a dent.
I put it back in the freezer. Padded wearily back to bed. Screw it.
So today I pulled it out for dessert.
There’s a very tight white piece of plastic across the top. A few deep spoon dents in it. I had tried.
Who knew they made tamper-proof (adult-proof) ice cream containers?
Couldn’t see it in the dark.
(Of course, not buying the ice cream in the first damn place works even better.)
