The only thing positive that comes to my mind about this scorching hot weather is the joy of owning a shaved ice machine.
Last night I froze 3 containers of filtered water that fit in the shaved ice maker.
After some strenuous, sweat producing retail therapy today, I came home and began to prepare myself for some brain freeze.
I popped a chubby ice cylinder from its form, placed it in the machine’s holder, attached the electric (yes electric! a far better thing than the old hand crank kind for sure) spinner gizmo, pressed the button and a fine, delicate snow began falling into the cup below. I removed the cup and added some Knudsen’s blueberry-pomegranate juice, stirred it gazed upon its beauty. Taking the first spoonful, a knife-like pain gripped my soft palate, sinus and just underneath the recessed lower surface of my right eye.
A complete success!
