Ice Cream Truck Blues:Not What You Might Think

The ice cream truck in our neighborhood has some nerve. Every night it arrives just as Izzy is about to fall asleep which is around 8:00 p.m. It plays its jingle quite loudly outside Izzy's window.

At first he used to ask.."Why does that ice cream truck come out so late? Who is eating ice cream now? Shouldn't they be asleep? (I swear none of these statements were prompted by me.)

The past few nights, his tune has changed. He seems angry at the truck. As soon as it arrives he yells: GO AWAY YOU STUPID ICE CREAM TRUCK! I NEED TO GO TO SLEEP!

Tonight I had a good mind to go outside a reprimand the ice cream man. Thankfully I had the good sense to stay inside.
