OT - Throwback Thirsty Thursday
That's right - Throwback AND Thirsty!
I know that many people prefer to have ice cream only when it's hot outside (weirdos) and milkshakes are a popular choice (no dripping cone!). I like a good milkshake, but they always leave me thirsty. There is one ice cream drink that does not.
Root Beer Float
And I'm not talking ANY ol' kind of root beer. I'm talking about the ONLY root beer: A&W.
When I was a kid, there was an A&W nearby. The parents took us there for meals (loved the window trays and the mugs of root beer!). Grandpa took us there for ice cream!
One time, for whatever reason, it was just Grandpa and me. That day, the A&W was giving out balloons to children and those balloons had prizes on the inside. Grandpa made me wait until I'd finished my ice cream cone to pop that balloon. I won a free Root Beer Float. AND GRANDPA LET ME HAVE IT!!! "It will be our secret." ~wink~
To this day, I always think of my first root beer float and that special time with Grandpa. He's been gone 34 years and I still miss him. <3
Do you have a throwback thirsty memory?
