YES! A Rootbeer float-sundae! Those days are gone now! A nice glass of ice water with a slice of lemon for flavor. Prunes on the side.

I had (Haagen Dazs) vanilla ice cream in root beer, in an insulated mug.  I was thinking about adding some ice cubes to make it frostier, but was too thirsty.  Actually, I would rather have had Dreyers vanilla, but I didn't want to buy that much ice cream.

I have enough of everything left over for another one tonight....MUCH later.  I'm still full from a skimpy bacon & lettuce tortilla wrap I ate 5 or 6 hours ago.

BUT......CHOCOLATE sauce?  With root beer?  Srsly?  Never heard of that, much less tried it.  I sometimes buy root beer and cream soda, and mix them half & half....with a few drops of vanilla extract.

I'm kinda the odd one in this family, I can take chocolate or leave it.  Hot cocoa on a wintry day is nice, but we haven't had any winter in over a year. 

(I do like the velvety super-dark chocolate bars, but it gives me should have seen my mother's face light up when I told her THAT!)

Michael, I had a similar relation with a white tailed deer here in southernmost Illinois, about 10 years ago. A doe, she used to come up to me and lick my hand, as I petted here head. Look into each other's eyes. It's amazing!

I opened up my sour cherry juice from Stovenia a while ago and that makes a good drink.

These days I'm having an almost daily conversation with a robin who made a nest on my front porch. She cheeps and hops right up to me. Crazy bird. I can go out and say "where are you?" and here she comes.

Daniel, you sound like the rational physician now! Oh Fie! To have a root beer float topped with whipped cream, chocolate sauce and a lovely sprinkle of nuts on top! 

Comment by Daniel W on June 21, 2015 at 2:47pm

Felaine, it would be a lot healthier to have your root beer float, without the ice cream and the root beer.  :-)

When I was on the diet about 3 days, I was shopping and saw that I was approaching the ice cream parlor that sells delicious Ice cream for $1 a scoop or cup.  I looked at my clock and saw that it was just past their opening time of noon, so I popped-in.

I started to order three cups of varieties that I've not tried before, when I realized I was on the Atkins diet, so I took the one cup she had made, took it home and put it in the freezer, where it still resides until I start adding carbs back in the diet.

Two healthy things to do, according to some science magazines: eat chocolate and watch cat movies. Or have daily conversations with cats!

Oh my goodness, No! Spud. You wouldn't give up, any more than I wouldn't give up. Life is about facing challenges with grit and vinegar! I did have the spark knocked out of me for a few days, but recovery returned soon enough to make me want to work harder. 

Comment by Idaho Spud on June 21, 2015 at 2:07pm

Ooooh, I would like a root beer float, but I'm going to resist because I've been on the Atkins diet for 2 weeks now and have lost 12 pounds.  I do eat all the strawberries from my garden, but my two small patches don't produce many, so they don't hurt the diet too much.  I also dip into my yogurt every 5 days and have a tablespoon of that.
