    The Ice Cream Man is back prowling the neighborhood and playing that damn song over and over and over and over. I had to close the windows in the house and crank up the white noise machine to drown out that hellish din. On the bright side the driver will eventually go insane so there is some justice in this universe.



    (Not the actual truck prowling my neighborhood but THAT IS THE DAMN SONG.)

    I've never understood how ice cream trucks can make a profit.

    Maybe if they're parked on a busy corner in the city with lots of people around.

    But I can't see them breaking even in the quiet suburbs where they drive through neighborhoods playing that music. How much ice cream would they have to sell just to cover the cost of gasoline in those old trucks?
