When Pissed, Get Desert... Preferably Italian Gelato. Trust Me...

The cool thing about running around with the shorties is the fact that my boys always make me feel better. They are funny when shopping and right now I could use some fun. I am a wee bit pissed off about a closing dragging on and on and on... The dragging and dragging part kinda ticks me off and the irony is it isn't even my closing. It belongs to a loved one and sometimes you just have to butt out and let things take their course no matter what happens.

Sometimes that can be very hard to do when other things are hanging in the balance... Even harder when you keep telling your friggin' relative that (a) you are not their representative in the transaction and (b) that they should speak with their broker. Turns out they are speaking with the broker but since I am handy why not drive me crazy as well (LOL).

Know what? I am not going to be annoyed about this anymore. My solution? Turn off my cell phone and treat my kids to ice cream (LOL). In this case Italian Gelato at Piu Bello Hopefully Stephen will stop speed dialing people long enough for me to enjoy nibbling with the kids (I swipe the cones and spoon a taste from each cup then let them have at it - LOL). :-)

Have you ever been to Piu Bello in Forest Hills? No? Sweetie pies you guys need to take yourselves over to 70-09 Austin Street (on the corner across from Barnes and Noble and the NY Sports Club). I love this place. They have public internet computers you can rent there right next to the ATM. That means if I don't have my laptop I can still read your posts and enjoy a treat while lurking on your blogs (LOL). BTW, you can park at B&N and if you validate your ticket you pay $3. ;-)

Wanna meet the shorties? You're gonna have to be quick because our next stop is Barnes and Nobles. Noah has to learn how to read ten books by himself. This should be a very interesting year. Dude can type. YouTube and Google are his friends.

Hmm... I wonder if I can get him blogging next year. We already fight over the digital cameras (LOL). Wanna see his latest snapshot? Check this out... ;-)

Mmmmmmm.... this job is really making me fat :)

I gotta admit I hang around with my shorties on stressful days too, and it absolutely helps.

Gelato will usually do the trick if you're pissed.  But . . . what about getting pissed over gelato? 

Happened to me last week at Ceasar's Palace in Las Vegas where I supidly ordered two gelatos without asking the price.  $22.00 later I was pissed!  Awfully good, but still pissed.

Thank you, Team Honeycutt.

Dawn, I am crazy about my wee people. They are helping me have a second childhood (LOL).

Oh my word... $22 bucks? Margaret, what did you get for that? Piu Bello has a Spanking-A $16 five flavored big bowled gelato treat that I drool over but never buy because I would need five friends with five spoons (LOL).

How could Italian gelato not make you feel better?? It's not readily available here, at least not that I know but I have had it in on some vacations down south and it is yummy!

I didn't know this ride came with snacks...I love gelato!  Could I have a really BIG spoon???

I honestly admit - I'm not reading a thing ... just looking at that two amazing beauties up top.

Posted by Stephen Kappre, Helping You Home (KW Hometown) almost 11 years ago

Barb, it is definitely yummy. :-)

LOL @ Laura. Absolutely! ;-)

Steve, they are amazing, eh? My friends are so used to me collecting food porn they don't eat right away and start rearranging the table for me to take the shot. Sometimes they do it when I don't want to and remind me my cellphone takes pictures (LOL). ;-)
