Taking Care with Pumpkin Ice Cream
I took a little bit of a spill this weekend. Those close to me are probably tired of hearing about it, but rest assured (family and friends) (and I have been resting) I doth not dwell anymore. How could I? What do they say in the mafia? "Take care of it." Well, that's exactly what I did with my aches, pains and woes. For those of you that don't know, here's the (long) story (short):
While trying to catch my Bart train, I got caught in an OccupySF rally. I know, I know. I should have been occupying with the protesters, but I was eager to get home after a busy day and I wasn't even planning to participate in the protest. I was just swept away by the full momentum of the crowd. Before I could even fathom whether I too wanted to occupy or not, I was occupying the ground. I slipped and fell. It's that simple. I was scared, then it hurt, then there was blood (ew!), and then I was annoyed. Let's not dwell though. This happened:
and then this happened:
Tetanus shot sad face :(
But then this happened! After I went to the doctor, I took myself out for a treat because no one should grow up when it comes to ice cream. I'd recently heard via twitter that Bi-Rite Creamery finally had pumpkin ice cream. One of my favorite things to do at the turning of any season is to go for the ice cream of the season: strawberry and peach in the summer, pumpkin in the fall, chocolate in the spring, summer, fall and winter. Some flavors are just timeless.
It was also a really hot San Francisco October day, so it only made sense that I pop into Bi-Rite and take care of things. I did what was right.
See how fast a sad face can turn into a happy face!!! Pumpkin ice cream makes everything better.
