Take Two Scoops and Call Me In The Morning

I haven't been feeling so hot the last few days, so I emailed my professors and told them I wouldn't be in class today, thinking I needed one day of R & R and copious amounts of orange juice.

So, planning on not attending classes, I didn't set my alarm.

When I woke up this morning I felt perfectly fine.

And now I feel pefectly guilty.

What contributed to my miraculous overnight cure, you ask? I think I know the answer.

Two helpings of this action right before bed:

Oooooh, yeeeaaahh.

Tillamook ice cream is above and beyond the best ice cream available in the grocery store. Bubblegum is a seasonal flavor of theirs, and when it hits shelves in the spring and summer, you'd better believe I'm all over that business. And get this, it doesn't have bubblegum in it, but bubblegum FUDGE in bubblegum flavored ice cream.

Hello, I'm a kid again.

And I like that.

Plus, I'm playin' hooky.

What fun--a day off! Do you professor's read your blog?

I went home from work fake sick early on Tuesday and called in fake sick on Wednesday.

I don't feel one teeny tiny bit guilty.

I DO feel badly that I didn't make a whole week of it though.

Kimba said...

A day off! I hear that is PERFECT for calling your best friend. :) Just teasing. I hope you're napping or watching Ellen or eating chocolate cake in bed.

Bubble gum AND chocolate? It's like everything I've ever wanted!

Ashley and Zach Smart said...

Okay. You talked me into it and it sounds delicious. I'm going to buy some tonight.

Tillamook ice cream makes anything and anyone better. I do have to say that bubble gum ice cream sounds so gross though. Sorry Abby, but I haven't tasted it so I guess I shouldn't say anything. And it just fine to play hooky. Sometimes you just need a day to yourself to relax and do absolutely nothing!

I ADORE Tillamook Ice Cream. It reminds me of summer, though I would eat it year round if I could. Eat an extra bowl tonight, just for me :) And I'm glad you got to play hooky today- everyone needs a hooky day every once in awhile.

We probably don't even need to tell you this because you're so on it, but just in case, you're medicinal take on our Bubble Gum Ice Cream is the Post of the Day at And if it makes you feel even better, you've pretty much returned the favor. A couple of people around here were feeling kind of sick, and after seeing your comment, their demeanor brightened noticeably.
