Do you do desert runs for the family?

It is really a fun thing to serve those around you.  Sometimes it can be a problem to serve the wrong thing too much, but in cases like the covid lockdowns, it is nice to go out and get a nice treat for the family.  The existence of many things is now gone and part of that is dining in at most restaurants.  The change has brought about a new way of life and a new way to experience it. This week I learned that lots of people still want the things they wanted a few months ago and are willing to wait a long time for them.  This was made prevalent on my trip to the dairy queen with my wife last night. We were under the impression that a trip to get some ice cream would make the end of our evening a fun time.  one great thing to do is to get in the car and head to some place you know you both will love. 

One thing that is not so great is when there are a lot of people in line, but wating outside is not as bad as being at home.   It turned out that the light was ia lot of other people with the same idea as us..  It was strange because technically the inside of the store should have been open but it was not. This made us a bit sad because we knew we would be waiting for a long time.  Since the inside was closed we imagined that the line would go very quickly. Unfortunately, it did not and was a very poor waiting process. Not all things that seem bad are.  It was actually nice to spend some extra time away from home. 

We had tons of time to talk and decide what would really be good and tasty for the night. The upside is that we got to go through the entire menu on our phones for a long time and talk about the best items to get.  Many were based around our favorite candy box candy. I mean is there much better than getting your favorite type of candy box in your ice cream? I am honestly not sure and I sure love a Reese cup-filled treat. The chocolate brownie was definitely had by my wife.  I almost went for the warm cookie and ice cream.

Waiting was actually part of the problem though.  We ended up spending as much in gas as we spend on the ice cream and honestly being behind someone shooting exhaust fumes for an hour was not the best thing for us. The big issue was that we waited a very long time and the order we received was shoddily put together and an extra topping was missing.  That was a bit of a bummer to be honest.  It really showed a very poor lack of management.  A store that was being staffed with so many people should have had that line flying and orders should be correct considering that you are only taking one order at a time and not the 4 to 5 when the store is running at normal capacity. I wish we had a better after the experience, but at least we got out of the house and spent some fun time together.
