Marisa, at Metroblogging Philadelphia, reminds us that today is Free Cone Day at Ben and Jerry's. What is better than free ice cream? Well, I can think of a few things, but I think I'll have to settle for the free cone.
Last year I completely forgot about the free ice cream on Free Cone Day, and I also happened to forget my umbrella. As I walked home from work in the rain I saw that the Ben and Jerry's by Rittenhouse Square was getting ready to close. Figuring it couldn't hurt to see if there was any free ice cream left, I popped it. I left the shop with a strange mish mash of the left over scraps in a small cup.
As the rain fell on me and my ice cream I smiled.
It is the simple pleasures that make life worth it, don't ya agree?
