ice cream man



i love the dinky dinky tiny ice cream van that passes by my window every day. even the constant drone of "music box dancer" that announces its arrival does not dampen my mood when it comes by.

soundtrack: "ice cream man" by jonathan richman, "justified and ancient" by the klf.

Hi Santos,

Wow! Cool ice cream truck! All we get is the generic Mr. Softee truck going around, although I don't see it around my neighborhood anymore. =(

My brother was man with a van selling an ice cream for a while, even in a hot climate he didn't make enough to pay the rent, groceries, etc. It was nice to have cash every day, but it just wasn't enough, and he worked 10 hours a day at it, besides.
