Random Conversations

Background: It was another busy day of product development at the Hills and Burdman household. Hillsy noticed that Burdman was in one of her craftin' grooves and suspected that she probably didn't want to break it by going to Stop & Shop for their weekly Sunday food shopping trip. The thoughtful man that he is, Hillsy volunteers to do the groceries for the second weekend in a row.

SCENE
The couple gets up from the table and starts cleaning up after dinner. Like clockwork, Marichelle begins to scrounge around for something sweet...

marichelle: Hey babe, I totally dreamt that you weren't able to get the Caramel Cone Haagen Dazs ice-cream. Isn't that weird? I was so shocked to see it in the freezer this afternoon, I even told Ez and K that you weren't able to find the flavor. So weird. Hillsy pretends to be interested.
hillsy: Huh. Weird. still pretending to be engaged. Hey, you know what I also bought? Haagen Dazs "Five". It's their new thing, apparently only has 5 flavors ingredients.
marichelle: Oh yeah? What are they?
hillsy: Opens the freezer and starts reading the label. Milk, cream, sugar, eggs, van...
marichelle: interrupts. Oh yeah? What did they leave out?
hillsy: Hmm. Let me see, I also bought the regular stuff, coz I wanted to compare the taste... let's see... Milk, cream, sugar, eggs, van... wtf? It's the same exact thing!??!
marichelle: Nice. That's SO wrong.


Notes:
I couldn't resist the caramel cone (my new favorite flavor) so I just wanted to note that I personally haven't done a taste test, but I will and will definitely give you the low down.
