Holiday Postlude

I bought Pumpkin Pie ice cream at Cold Stone last night. They have Egg Nog, too. This fact is one of my favorite details of the yuletide season. In the summertime, all they can offer you is strawberry, which you can get all year long. What else would there be? Swimming pool-flavored ice cream? They usually offer some baseball-themed flavor or something that has a patriotic package in time for Independence Day. But the other seasons don't really offer the same flavoring opportunities that the holidays do. You can get a Shamrock Shake at McDonald's for St. Patrick's Day, but that's kind of wrong, isn't it? Shamrocks don't taste like mint in the slightest.
