Chocolate Malt Ice Cream Sandwiches // A Cozy Kitchen

When you’re chilling by yourself, being busy, doing house stuff, do you talk to yourself? I grew up with a set of parents who ALWAYS talked to themselves. I remember I’d sneak up on them when they’d be doing whatever it was they were doing; gardening, cleaning out the garage, looking through drawers, and they’d just be full-on having a conversation with themselves. I remember I’d jump out and go “ahhhhh!” and of course I’d always scare them, especially my mom. She’s usually curse in Spanish and tell me to go away. I thought they were the weirdest, but then I got older…

A few days ago, when I was doing what I always do, which is make these ice cream sandwiches at home for my internet friends (that’s you, by the way) I caught myself having a conversation with.myself.

But I usually just avoid that place because I get distracted, become a little overzealous and then end up feeling vulnerable, which usually leads to me spending way too much money. Also, the parking situation is usually a nightmare. Tar-zhay stress!

This is why I usually head to my neighborhood Rite-Aid/CVS. I live in what people call a “gentrified” area. I sort of hate that word but it makes it so my Rite-Aid adventures are a little on the crazzzie side, in a good and scary sort of way. The biggest perk about going? The Thrifty’s ice cream. That ice cream case, always attendant-less, always calls my name as I pass by.
