My Childhood, Revived by the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board
They say that you need to grow up sometime. But I never believed that.
When I was a kid, we had the snow cone man. He was much cooler than the ice cream man. The ice cream man drove, well, an ice cream man truck. It had doors on the side where the ice cream was kept. The ice cream truck played stupid kid music.
The snow cone man, on the other hand, drove a cool white Volkswagen Bus. You could get red, blue, lime, and root beer sno cones. And there was no stupid music. The snow cone man beeped the horn of his white Volkswagen bus until you came out to get your snowcones.
Life was good. But now, it promises to get even better, thanks to the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board. Yes, the backward PLCB, owner of Pennsylvania's antiquated State Store monopoly, is giving consideration to starting a fleet of Liquor Mobiles. Now, you don't have to look for one of Pennsylvania's 600 plus stationary Wines and Spirits shops. Just wait for the Liquor Mobile to come by. The Liquor Mobiles will have music. The leading candidate song is "It's Five O'Clock Somewhere" by Alan Jackson and Jimmy Buffett. If they're really smart, they'll also sell Kahlua Snow Cones.
