Somehow over at John Shore’s blog today we descended from Adam into lactose intolerant hell.
We just got to having too much pun and then I sprang the news about Ben & Jerry’s Free Ice Cream day described at www.benjerry.com.
I thought everyone knew.
On one of the local morning newscasts, the story ran just after the lead story – Trio of Tornadoes tear through Southern Virginia. 200 injured in Suffolk area. Blah, blah blah (no disrespect to the victims – just the newscasters).
(Broadcast journalist Rita turns to other journalist): Hey Bob! Guess where the kids and I will be when they get out of school today?
Rita: “At the nearest Ben & Jerry’s”
(Rita faces camera 2 as camera man goes for the head shot): “Ben & Jerry’s are giving away a scoop of ice cream today to mark their 30th Anniversary.”
(Viewer turns off TV.)
How I got wind of it came not from the TV news, but a blog I have on my Google Reader. It’s local to my area and so I didn’t put it on my blogroll.
It’s here http://supernovamom.wordpress.com/ , and I’m getting to where I could not get by without it. This former editor turned stay-at-home mom has a companion site here http://supernovakidseatfree.wordpress.com/2008/04/23/ben-jerrys-free-cone-day/ .
What a woman and lady.
If she figures out how to franchise this across the U.S. a la craigslist she will strike gold.
I have no idea if she follows Jesus Christ as a Christian but she is sure practicing true religion by “showing a beggar where to get bread.”
She is saving me cash and helping me find activities for my children to do – and making it easy!
Thank you, oh thank you, supernova mom.
