Status update from June 10, 2012:
Brian and I put a gallon of ice cream on the counter. We told the kids it would take about 20 minutes for it to soften enough to be scoop-able. They obviously thought that would take too long — five minutes later, we found the children had opened the ice cream and were hammering it with a meat tenderizer in order to soften it.
The crazy thing is, it worked!
For the record, it was Farr’s Brownies on the Moon, which is just like Rocky Road, only with little brownie chunks instead of nuts. One of my favorites, so I don’t blame them for being proactive about this.
