Midnight Ice Cream

Earlier today I asked my wife if we needed to order formula for the baby. She said yes and I ordered the formula on Amazon Fresh. Along with the formula I ordered baby food and the most important item ice cream. The only problem was the earliest two hour delivery window was 10:00 PM to 12:00 AM. We normally go to bed around 9:00 PM. This meant we were going to be staying up later than normal all because we wanted some ice cream and were too lazy to run out to the store or ice cream shop.

I should have been done writing this by now. I was at the downstairs computer attempting to write this but my mother-in-law is visiting and she has no concept of silence. If there is silence she has to fill it and has no volume control. My wife was once like this as well but has gotten slightly better. It used to be I could be in the middle of doing anything and my wife would walk in the room and start talking to me. I felt like Jack Nicholson in The Shining.

It is hard to fathom how people can have that little understanding for someone else’s space and time. I had a timer sat for ten minutes. If she could have been quiet for that amount of time she could have then filled the air wih as much noise as possible, and I’m leaving that typo. This keyboard is terrible. This computer is slow. I thought writing on the Apple was going to be a task due to its small keybord but this computer. This computer is slow and the keyboard doesn’t register every keystroke.

My wife is going to read this and yell at me but I was a few feet from her mother clearly trying to work on something. It isn’t difficult to respect a person’s space. It really isn’t. It is easier to write with the children in the room. Now my wife is going to be really mad. If I were smart I would delete all this and go back to writing about the ice cream. I do hope it is here soon. I didn’t stay up this late already not to eat my ice cream.

I can’t even remember what flavor I got. I think I got mint chocolate chip or something similar. Oh yeah my original post was going to be about the labor shortages and how if there is a person out there willing to deliver groceries at midnight I am sure that there are people out there willing to do almost anything. I wouldn’t deliver ice cream at midnight. Even if I fully understand the desire to have ice cream at midnight.

If you add the time I had downstairs to what I’ve put in here then I think I’m done with this. I don’t even know if I’m going to enjoy my ice cream at this point. It is too late to be doing anything but sleeping, and you know the kids are going to wake up at 4:00 AM.
