About 8 months ago I had a dream about this ice cream. It went something like this: I was in the grocery store with my cousin and saw the ice cream and was overjoyed. I said to her, “This is like a dream!” and at that moment, realization set it… “Oh noo..this IS a dream.” And then I woke up. It was that dream that inspired me to make change.
I went on the Breyers website and looked to see if they still made it. I was prepared to have a whole truck load shipped to my house. Instead I found the dreaded news that Breyers discontinues flavors that aren’t as popular. So I collected my thoughts and wrote a kind of crazy, desperate, stalkerish, I’ve-been-dreaming-about-your-ice-cream, to whom it may concern email. I never got a response back. So rude. I had my heart on my sleeve, let my feelings out and I was left standing there without a rose(Note: see bachelor or bachelorette for reference.)
Months went on and I gave up hope. Then, the other day I asked Dan if he wanted anything from the grocery store. He said he wanted cookie dough ice cream. I was in the frozen section looking for his ice cream but all the doors were completely fogged up so I had to open all of them. I opened one of the doors and saw the words… NEW and Breyers Chips Ahoy Ice Cream. Now, dream Grace has tricked me before, so I made sure this wasn’t a dream before I freaked out.
When I got home I almost broke down the door and ran into the bedroom DAN! LOOK IT’S MY ICE CREAM and it says NEW on it. IT WAS MY EMAIL! I DID THAT! Then we both ate ice cream in bed like PMSing girls. It was awesome.
I make CHANGE happen you know. Take that, Obama.
