Ice Cream Cone

Ok But seriously, I’ve been having one of those nothing-ever-goes-the-way-it-should-days.  You know, the one that makes you wish you could crawl back in bed and hit the “do over” button?

So this song comes on my ipod shuffle as I’m riding my bike-stupid-fast-cuz-I’m-running-late-for-work-cuz-my-cat-peed-on-my-bag (yes, one of THOSE days)  and instantly I’m starting to feel better.

This is for you all:  MUSCLES  ”ICE CREAM”
