sprinkles

by Austen Tosone


If there's one thing that I'll always remember as a constant in my childhood, it's Dairy Queen. For as long as I can remember I would walk in to the store* and the guys who worked there would never even ask what I wanted. They'd sort of murmur "the usual?" and I'd just smile in return knowing that within a few minutes my soft-serve vanilla ice cream with rainbow sprinkles and M&Ms would be in my hands. And then a few weeks ago, something crazy happened. I ordered something else. And I swear the guy already had a cup in hand and was at the machine when I walked in and I actually had to stop him from making my usual. I'm not entirely sure what evoked this change of heart, but I was glad I was trying something new. It felt good to feel brave even if it was just ice cream. But hey! Baby steps, right?

*Speaking of changing it up, this isn't my most-frequented Dairy Queen. It's over 60 years old and is cash-only. The lines in the summer are unreal. Good thing I was there early!
