I remember those old advertisements where they were always asking people what you would do for a Klondike bar.
I’m sure you remember them too, but if not, let me tell you. People would offer to do all kinds of crazy things for one of those ice cream bars. My brother said he would give up his kid, when his son happened to be throwing a hissy fit when someone asked him. He said if his son was in a good mood, he wouldn’t trade him for anything. I had to laugh at that because BJ was a horror when he was tired. One of the other ladies said she would give up her air conditioning. I thought this was a bit bizarre. Ice cream may make you cool for a couple minutes, but once it melted, it was just warm cream. Why would anyone say they would give up their air conditioning. I know how hot it can be during the summer. I wouldn’t give up my air conditioning, not even for a Klondike bar. I may give it up if my kids were threatened, but for ice cream? I thought this lady had to be crazy. After the guy who was asking the crazy question walk away, she said she would have gladly given up her air conditioning. Her air conditioning had broken about a week earlier and she still hadn’t found anyone come out to fix it. Without even looking at her AC unit, one man told her that she would probably need to have it replaced. She didn’t have the money for a new unit, so she said if someone wanted to take the AC and give her a Klondike bar, she would say thank you.
