My Thoughts On Ice Cream Trucks


Please. PLEASE. PLEASE tell me I'm not the only one in the entire universe who finds ice cream trucks creepy?

(This is were you nod your head in agreement like a bobble head).

In the last couple of months, I have come to observe ice cream trucks. A lot. Ice cream trucks come in and out of our neighborhood. And, my conclusion? THEY ARE FREAKY! In fact, I find  them so unsettling, I have made a list of WHY they are just so horrible.

1. Don't take candy from strangers.
Remember when we were kids and our parents would say - "If a car pulls up and the person offers you candy (or ice cream) RUN AWAY..."???

2. Stay away from Kidnap Vehicles.
Haven't you ALWAYS thought that those creepy vehicles ARE WEIRD?

Health rating. How long have those ice cream treats been in THAT truck? Did that ice cream truck driver WASH HIS HANDS?

Of course, I have a very logical response to ice cream trucks. I do the most natural thing ever.

I run and hide. I stay in my car. I stay in the closet.


  1. I love ice cream trucks. Great memories. I never noticed the ice cream man, but I remember the trucks and the ice cream. You really were sheltered as a child. There is still time for you to enjoy this piece of Americana!

  2. So I was shaking my head as I was reading (this is where you nod...) pretty ironic. :)


I (heart) comments! Thank you for making my day!
