You can Freezy us and Frosty us and Slurpy us all over until we’re little more than melted mush, but what we said was, “We want a sno-cone!” The old-fashioned kind. In a cone. With rocky ice and enough sticky syrup to drown in. From someone friendly who doesn’t notice when you confuse color with flavor (“What flavor will you have?” Blue.) With about a zillion flavors to choose from. The kind that you can say: “Make mine a large green, and put a little chocolate on top.” That kind. Spelled any way you like. Is that so much to ask for?
