Monday Moment - Ice Cream Swirl
Anyway, I manage to create the biggest mess you've ever seen. I pull down on the handle and a dribble appears in my cone. I push up and nothing happens. I pull down and an ice cream swirl is flowing but it won't stop or cut off. I have a glob and more glob coming into my cone. It's rather obscene. I look for a spoon or something to try to cut off the machine. There's nothing around.
What shall I do? Should I just go ahead and put my mouth under the spigot and just eat directly? Well, no... that would be rude and unsanitary. I stop pulling the handle, then I admit I used my finger to just swipe my mess into my cone. I trust the next person would let the leftover go into the trough, and then begin again.
Have you had any machinery fails? Are you inept at dispensing ice cream?
I came back to the table with the saddest looking cone. Ray was laughing...."What the heck did you do?"
I gave a rueful grin and ate my mess. Sigh - what can I say?
