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.


  1. Megan,
    Words cannot describe the sweetness of this post. And, pumpkin ice cream was the clearly the right tonic. xoxoxo

  2. Right - no one should ever outgrow ice cream! Words to live by.

  3. Yay, smiley face again. Pumpkin turns the frown upside down!

  4. There's some psychological component to taking a spill, that can't be overlooked. I can't put it into words, but I've been there....on the ground. Will be getting an ice cream cone next time, perfect antidote.
    Feel better!

  5. Wow sissy, you really took care of business! And is it wrong that I think sad tetanus face is cute? Miss you.

  6. sisssy!! you occupied the GROUND?! hahahaa. sorry to laugh, but that was a funny line. So glad you turned the frown upside down!!
