Chocolate Ice Cream

“...stop pacing the aisles and counting the miles. Instead, climb more mountains, eat more ice cream, go barefoot oftener, swim more rivers, watch more sunsets, laugh more and cry less. Life must be lived as we go along."  ~ Robert J. Hastings, Tinyburg Tales
A day or so before my sister passed away, the doctor told her she did not have much time left, probably a day at most.

"Did you hear what I said, Alanna?  the doctor asked.

"Yes," she answered.

"And what do you think about that?"

"I think I'd like some chocolate ice cream."

"Alanna, did you hear what I said a minute ago?"

"Yes.  What is it that you want me to say?  It seems that I should be having that chocolate ice cream NOW!"
