Cody hates ice cream and his dad loves to tease him about it. When Cody was younger and we were in the car running errands, Don would pull up to a mail box, roll down the window and say (to the mailbox) something along the lines of… "Oh, hi! How are you today? Cody would like a Post Master Sundae with two scoops of ice cream and cherries on top.” (If there were security cameras around, anyone watching must have thought we were absolutely crazy or complete idiots…or both.) At this point, Cody would usually freak out a little bit and then Don would roll the window up and drive off.
Tonight, Cody convinced Don to play Walkie Talkies with him. Don went into the bedroom, alerted Cody with a ring, and this is the conversation that went down…
Cody - “Hello!”
Don- “Hello. This is Willy Wonka from the Ice Cream Factory looking for Mr. Cody Lancaster. Do you know where he is?”
Cody- “In the living room.”
Don- “Is this Cody Lancaster?”
Cody- “Yes it is.”
Don- “Cody, you just won a year’s supply of ice cream! What flavor would you like?”
Cody- “The who cares I hate it. 10-4. Bye.”
Cody – “Hello.”
Don- “I’m representing the Willy Wonka Ice Cream Factory and…”
Cody- “Okay. Bye.”
And just like that, Cody was no longer interested in playing with his dad.
