Brain Freeze

101/2009

I work at an ice cream stand in Central Park during the summer and bums are always trying to get me to give them something to eat. Since they don’t pay a lot of attention (or just don’t know better) I often scrape the freezer burn off the side of the cart and put it into a cone and hand it to them.

I should probably feel bad, but they love it! It brings so much joy to their face. They know it doesn’t taste good, but they’re happy because someone actually acknowledged them. It makes me feel like a boy scout who’s just done his good deed for the day.
