Ice-Cream – Sunday Photo Fiction – May 17th 2015

Ice-cream is one of my favourite treats. It’s part of my childhood memories, having to wait for the ice-cream man in the street and buying one which we usually call “dirty ice-cream.” I don’t really know why we call it like that, all I know was that it was really delicious, especially the mango or purple yam flavours, not to forget the pineapple and banana flavours.

When I was in Britain, ice-cream vans are different and are often brightly decorated and carry images of ice cream. Along the sides, a large sliding window acts as a serving hatch, and this is often covered with small pictures of the available products, with their associated prices. A distinctive feature of ice cream vans is their melodic chimes, and often these take the form of a famous and recognizable tune. There are two types of vans: a “hard van” which sells scoop ice cream and is only equipped with a freezer and a “soft van” which has a freezer and also a soft serve whippy machine installed serving ice cream cones and Screwballs.

Ice-cream, ice-cream, I scream
Merrily, merrily, life is but a dream
Mangoes, purple yam, chocolate
I guess it all comes down to fate
Strawberry, vanilla, pineapple
I dream of nightshade and purple
Rocky road, some delight, you choose
From the tangled shroud of sleep, I rose
Always fun in the summer at the park
Met this guy, his name is Mark
Warm breeze, bright days by the lake
You find yourself at the bottom of the lake
Ice-cream, ice-cream, I scream
Merrily, merrily, life is but a dream!
