That ice cream is SO BAD!

Since the cat clinic has become my second home lately, I have become quite friendly with the staff there.  It's a great bunch of ladies and I enjoy talking with them.  Between work appointments I needed to stop to pick up some tubing .. er .. never mind.  Cat supplies.  I was speaking to - I will call her "Carol" - because that is her name.

Carol: I have news! I found the cannoli ice cream. I bought 2 pints .. I was going to buy 4 but decided on 2.  Boy I'm glad I only bought 2 because it's awful!

Me: What? Awful? Really? What's so awful about it?

Carol: Well I should have read the container. They used mascarpone instead of ricotta, there were pieces of chocolate covered cannoli shell which I thought was kind of weird ..

She continued to tell me all things wrong with the ice cream and I figured I would try it anyway if I ever found it, but I might not try to find it quite so hard!

After leaving I called the BF and here is what we said.

Me: I have some news about the cannoli ice cream!

He: News? What?

Me: Carol at the cat clinic found it - she said she was going to buy 4 pints but was glad she only bought 2 because it was awful!

He: Awful?

Me: That's what she said. I don't think I will rely on her opinion, I mean, I'd still like to try it, but she said it's awful. So funny, she almost bought 4 pints - that's how badly she wanted it to be good!

He: Well .. Happy Valentine's day Honey - you have 4 pints of cannoli ice cream in your freezer right now!


Happy Valentine's Day!


  1. Nice box of chocolates you have there.

  2. So, did you like it? Or did you also think it was awful?

    1. Definitely wasn't awful - actually I enjoyed it. I'm not sure what Carol was looking for but I thought it was pretty good.

  3. Even if you didn't like it, it was the thought that counts!

    1. Oh I totally agree - just embarrassing to pronounce something 'awful' to someone who has gotten whatever it is for you as a gift!
