One day, a few weeks after Ashley came home from Philadelphia, she shouted (as I was driving), "OH MY GOD they opened a Rita's up here!!!!!"
"What's Rita's?" I (calmly) inquired.
"OH MY GOD it is this absolutely amazing ice/slush place, I CANNOT BELIEVE they've opened a Rita's HERE!"
"I'm glad you're now happy to be home again," I replied.
Ashley can be a little dramatic at times. Can't imagine where she gets it from ;)
Anyway, for the past few weeks, on many evenings, there'd be a note somewhere in the house, "Gone to Rita's."
Ok. If she's happy, I'm happy.
Well, this afternoon I suggested, "Why don't we go to Rita's after dinner." My DH then wanted dinner at 3:15 pm. I stalled for a while.
After dinner, we took a ride.
OMG. To quote my darling daughter.
This is a very special place. We all had "Gelati," which have custard on the top & bottom with the flavored ice in the middle. I had a banana split ice with sugar free vanilla custard. Frank had Black Cherry Ice with vanilla custard. Ash had sugar free pink lemonade with sugar free vanilla custard.
I was compelled to call my Stitching Sister from the location so we could plan an excursion IMMEDIATELY.
I recommend that you lobby for one to be opened nearby. As long as they don't close mine.
