My mum and I were going to the ice cream shop on a hot summer’s day.
When we got there mum asked me ‘What flavour do you want?’
I really wanted to ask if I could have cookies and cream as well as salted caramel. See? This is the problem when you ask you mum or dad for ice cream! They always make you get the least while they enjoy a triple scoop of chocolate in a cone, but today is the day that I will gather up the courage and ask her.
“Mum, can I have a double scoop?” I asked her, expecting an argument.
“No, only have one” Mum answered. ‘Typical mum’ I thought.
The ice cream lady heard us and gave me a sly smile.
“Ok fine, can I have 1 scoop of salted caramel please?” I asked.
“In a cup” Mum quickly added. I frowned at her. The lady got my ice cream and it was huge!
“If only it was a bit smaller” My mum said for the 5th time in the car. “Ha! No way mum, this is my revenge!”
