Here it is October, temperatures are in the low 50s, and I’m doing a post on ice cream. Ben & Jerry’s ice cream, the Vanilla Caramel Fudge variety. Compared to flavors like Chubby Hubby and Cherry Garcia and Phish Food, Vanilla Caramel Fudge sounds pretty tame, doesn’t it? Uninspired, even.
Yeah, maybe it is. But only until you shovel a spoonful of the stuff into your mouth. That’s all it takes to transform you into a shivering, bleary eyed, drooling addict. One so weak and desperate for the taste that, time and again, you go way too far way too fast. And next thing you know? Massive brain freeze.
The pain of it is unbearable, crippling. You can’t move or think or breathe, all you can do is hold your head and moan. You rock back and forth begging for it to stop. It doesn’t.
That’s the stage where I am now with my latest brain freeze (the one I call blog funk) — the begging and moaning stage. I don’t want to get my hopes up; I’ve been wrong so many times before, you see, but I have a good feeling about this one. A feeling that a thaw might be imminent. I repeat, might.
How great would that be? Every bit as great as Ben & Jerry’s Vanilla Caramel Fudge. Here’s hoping.
