Friends are Better Than Ice Cream

Andrea, Corban and Hudson were away in Atlanta for 10 days and just came home.

Feeling very fatherly and wanting to bestow only blessings on my eldest, last night I proffered this to Hudson: "Would you like to go get some ice cream?!?"

Hudson's response, as any 3 three year old who's tasted the sweet nectar of the cow in this way: "Yaaaayyyyy!!!!"

We're walking out to the car en route to Cold Stone Creamery when his friend from across the cul-de-sac, Gabe (who he hasn't seen in 10 days mind you), saunters down our driveway.

Hudson yells his name with joy and runs and hugs him. Turning to me mid-embrace, he says, "Daddy, I don't want to go get ice cream."

Friends are better than ice cream, every time.

You should have brought both to get ice-cream. There are few things in life better than friends and ice-cream.

So true, so true. Eric Paul, if only I had your steel trap of a mind, things would go so much better for me. :-)
