Day 1382 - ICE CREAM!
While we were chasing the kids up and down 3rd Street Promenade in Santa Monica, the kids got very excited when they saw a four foot tall ice cream cone sculpture. As they ran to it, I told Lisa to get me the camera. After she accidentally handed me her maxipad pouch, I eventually got the camera and started to take pictures.
Pretty cute, right? And as it is with the advent of the digital camera, one picture is never enough. I began taking picture after picture hoping one of them would be the picture that would end all other Picture Friday entries.
But there was one little thing I didn't notice as I was playing self-involved photographer:
It was a damn trash can! Lisa and I* felt foolish about this entire incident. We immediately told the kids to stop touching and licking the ice cream sculpture because it was a trash can. The kids were a little confused, but we showed them why and how it was a trash can; I think it just made the kids even more confused.
I'll take a little blame for not realizing the ice cream cone was a receptacle for trash and vagrant waste, but why would you model a trash can like an ice cream cone? Might as well make a urinal look like a water play table! Or perhaps a stripper pole should look like a popsicle ("That popsicle don't taste like lemon-lime...").
