After running some errands today, I decided I wanted a Dairy Queen Blizzard.
Okay, who am I kidding? I had brought along coupons I’ve been saving for DQ.
The whole point of this excursion was to get a Blizzard.
Driving through town, towards DQ, I saw a hitchhiker. And I thought to myself, Self, you got nothin’ goin’ on today… Take this guy wherever he wants to go.
So I pulled over and asked…
– You need a ride?
– Oh, yeah! Thanks!
He got in and we figured out where he needed to go.
– Thanks for pickin’ me up; I’ve been standin’ there for a while.
– No prob. Hey! I was gonna go to Dairy Queen and get a Blizzard. I got a coupon; you want one?!
– Uhh… Ohhh… No, I don’t eat that stuff.
– Oh, yeah, no, okay… I’ll get one on the way back.
[…from driving you to a place that I do not need to go.]
I was so embarrassed. And the drive was so so awkward.
We got to where he needed to be and said our goodbyes.
I drove back to town less excited [but still excited] about my Blizzard. Ugh.
The worst part? My coupon was 2 for 1 Blizzards.
NO… I did not get two delicious candy ice cream treats for myself. But it did cross my mind.
At least I did get to hear this song on 89.1 KHOL whilst driving around…
