Schweddy Balls, Ice Cream, & Friends

This past Saturday, after service, the conversation with friends drifted away from the sermon, and meandered its way to ice cream.

And not just any ice cream: Ben & Jerry’s. They of the: Cherry Garcia, Phish Food, Chunky Monkey. And of their newest limited edition flavor:

Schweddy Balls.

Yes, you read that right: Schweddy Balls. Apparently, this moniker is an homage to a classic SNL skit featuring Alec Baldwin. (Having never seen it, I didn’t know).

Being the spiritual giant that I am, I felt it was important for my friends to know of this new taste sensation sweeping the nation! They read the press release, and laughed. The conversation then turned towards one of latest trends in boutique ice cream: that made from human milk!

Tell you the truth: I have a hard time wrapping my mind around this one, and actually find it udderly disgusting! Can you imagine the poor women providing the milk?

“Bernard, can you take over the pumping? My wrist is getting tired.”

Yes, those are the kinds of things we talk about. Although we’ve had our share of difficulties, and misunderstandings, we’ve worked through them.

I really do have the best friends.

How about you? Tell me about your friends?

PS When I called the local Ben & Jerry’s Scoop Shop, I caved–I couldn’t ask if they had “Schweddy Balls;” instead I inquired about the new flavor, and did they have it? They did not–not until next month. However, in my mind I imagined:

“Do you have Schweddy Balls?”

“This is Ariziona. It’s 108 out–what do you think? Oh, you meant the ice cream. My bad.”

  • Well, since @agapeguitars is my bestie IRL, yeah, we talk about all kinds of weird and inappropriate stuff. But I have found that the people with whom I can be the most me (which includes lots of weird and inappropriate thoughts!) are the people I can share the most deeply with. My best friends get to be that way because they participate in ALL of my life. So they hear all about silly, goofy stuff, but they also hear about the hard, confusing stuff too.

    Also, if you ever ride in a car with me for a long distance, expect to get deep. Because it will. It absolutely will.

    • Awesome!And so true--yet it's the finding of such folk that i've had a hard time with. Which makes the “virtual village” so gratifying to me. Thank you for being a friend!

  • I have a friend that enjoys grabbing the butts of other men. Including mine. I've learned to accept this and lean into it.

    • Larrry!?!?!?!?;-)And leaning into? That must take some hip action! 😉

    • There can be no accepting this, Matt. Especially not when you're bigger.

  • Cindy Holman

    Oh my! That last comment had me laughing RIGHT OUT LOUD! Had no idea about the newest flavor of Ben and Jerry's -- and I am quite a fan of theirs -- but can't have any of it while counting calories. No I can't.

    • Awesome! Thanks, Cindy!

  • Classic SNL skit -- one of my all time fav. Not sure I'm ready for it on a spoon. BTW, great post bud!

  • Please don't go another second without watching this: http://www.hulu.com/watch/4156/saturday-night-liv

    • Saw it on YouTube, but will check that when I get home.

    • Oh, dear! How they kept a straight face I'll never know.
