“SNIFF”The smell of ice-cream hit my nose. I heard a loud “DING.” A glimpse of joy approached me. The ice-cream truck had arrived. All the flavours, toppings and ice-creams. YUM. I’m guessing it’s so hard to choose as the line is not moving. Finally, I get there. The man says he had run out of ice-cream and to come back tomorrow. SERIOUSLY!
