Radish or not to radish....

Sometimes even I am taken by surprise by my own stupidity. I just asked Michelle if horseradish was a radish...in all seriousness.

Wishes do come true

People usually have consistent wishes over the years. You know, the same wish you make every year when you blow out your birthday candles? I mean, sure... there are big wishes like world peace, flood relief and feeding hungry children. Those are long shots. But you also have smaller very personal wishes that you will never share for fear of it not coming true. As of today i can finally tell you all what my consistent birthday wish has been for (insert ridiculously large number of years). Because today...yes, today...it came true. My wish is that i would live in, over or across the street from an ice cream parlor. Now, I'm not living IN an ice cream parlor. I'm not living OVER an ice cream parlor and I'm not even living across the street from an ice cream parlor. BUT! Exactly one block from my house? YES! Its true! An ice cream parlor is going in baby! They are building it as we speak! They even have a giant plastic ice cream spoon hanging on the wall. A true indication that its coming soon. Its exactly 137 steps from my front door. I will be making those 137 steps everyday for the rest of my life. Of course, as i grow fatter from my ice cream consumption those 137 steps will get harder to make.. but I'll invest in one of those motorized wheelie cart things to drive me there.

YES! Today is a good day!!!!
