So I hurried off to get these famed sundaes in which everyone loved. In the drive thru I ordered my thirteen sundaes, two with extra hot fudge and then waited. And waited. Then I waited some more. I’m not sure what the people in front of me ordered but I’m pretty sure it was one of everything on the menu.
No matter, I’ll just turn on some tunes. That’s when everything went south. Before I knew it a song came across the waves that just tore up my insides. Something about someone dying, never going to see them again, they couldn’t believe it, I’m here without you, why did you leave; so on and so on.
I’m not exactly sure what happened or why I was so tore up by this song but I began to bawl. Bawl. And just like that the line began to move and I was at the window before I knew where I was. I hurried to wipe the tears away and pull my life together before the woman came to the window.
Too late. The window swung open and the lady looked me over. Here I am, ordering thirteen sundaes (two with extra hot fudge), bawling, scrambling for dollars and change. I was still rummaging to get the money when I looked up at her. She cocked her eye brow and rocked back on one hip. She didn’t say anything but her face said it all.
I handed her the money and she started passing the sundaes through the window. When she handed me my change she gave me a look that just screamed, ‘Honey go get you a gallon and pick up the pieces’.
She slammed the window quickly and left me weeping with my thirteen sundaes.
