In Praise of the Local Ice Cream Truck

We have an ice-cream truck here, that drives around the neighborhood playing what I think is "Teddy Bears' Picnic', but how would I know? I finally spotted it the other day, after catching glimpses of it and hearing the song several times a day.

It's a scrunched little vehicle, pink, with 'Khalsa Ice Cream' handlettered on the side, and 'Caution, Children Crossing' on the hood. It's driven by two young men in black turbans, and stops every block or so. Kids come out with their parents and buy ice creams.

So far I haven't actually bought an ice cream. One of these days. In the meantime, I grin every time I hear the music wafting up the block.
