So in typical Texas fashion, the temperature yesterday- in February, mind you- made it up to 80 degrees. And of course, also in typical Texas fashion, today it is now 30 degrees cooler than it was yesterday, but that's not the point. Because the weather was warming up and the sun was staying out, Chill Out, our favorite local snow cone spot, decided it was time to open up shop.
Now you should know something about my husband- he is addicted to snow cones. As in, I think he would probably prefer to eat one for breakfast, lunch, and dinner during the year's warmer months rather than eat normal meals. And don't get me wrong, I enjoy a good vanilla/cherry snow cone every now and again, but I can't handle them with quite the same frequency that he can.
Well as we were returning from our afternoon o' errands yesterday, we just so happened to pass by Chill Out and I suggested, because I am a loving and gracious wife, that we stop by and have our first snow cone of 2009. So we did just that. And while perusing the menu, we noticed something a tad unusual. Take a look and let me know if you can figure out what struck us as a little abnormal:
Did you figure it out yet? I'll give you a hint- it's a flavor that has been added on in marker.
In case you are blind, you might not have noticed it, but there is definitely a flavor on there called "Thug Passion." I have so many questions. WHO orders a Thug Passion snow cone? And what flavors are involved in this snow cone- blood, dirt, and bullets? And how was this particular flavor in such high demand that it warranted being added on to the existing menu?
And this, my friends, is why I love Richmond, Texas.
