I CAN AFFORD THIS BUT DO I NEED IT?

Ice Cream Man

This ice cream quest of mine is getting out of control. While I searched the internet for the cheapest giant plastic ice cream cone (BTW, I actually found a listing of the giant cone on the local Craigslist for only $5), I ran into this:

DO I NEED IT?? Not really... But man, do I WANT it! Can you blame me??? Oh come on, look at it, people, just look at it. It's PINK! And it makes ice cream just like the kind you can buy at Dairy Queen, the fluffy, soft, creamy ice cream... How can you not want it? Plus I can make my own "healthy" organic ice cream and I know exactly what goes into it... I can bring it to work and make ice cream for my co-workers' birthday parties... I can also have an ice cream party at my house. I can make ice cream for my boyfriend and enjoy his tears of appreciation... I can also make ice cream for my future kids and their classmates and I will be the most popular mom ever... I am very tempted to click the BUY IT button at the website at this moment. Very, very tempted...

I so understand you! And there are even special dispensers for sprinkles and such! It's pink! I don't know about you actually 'needing' it, but it could turn you into the icecream fairy to all your friends.

How fun!? You would be popular sharing your happiness and love for ice cream. We recently bought 2 flavors of ice cream (1/2 gallons), then a friend brought over 2 more 1/2 gallons. I invited neighborhood kids for cones and made lots of kids happy. The only thing better would have been a fancy soft serve ice-cream machine!

do you have a kitchen aid mixer? I hear they make a snazzy ice cream maker attachment for it. I haven't tried the ice cream make, but I have tried the ice cream...and it's delicious!

Ah, that is so cool! The sprinkle dispenser really seals the deal in my mind.
