Isn't that What Ice Cream is For?

What good is the warmth of summer, without the cold of winter to give it sweetness."
— John Steinbeck (1902-1968)

The weedrblo reference is an inside joke, which I will explain later in this article. The titled responsion is "Isn't that What Ice Cream is For?" is a simple response to the contrasts that define what makes summer so appealing. The parallel is in human nature — five minutes in one position starts to feel like torture.

In terms of weed, blow and the letter that binds them, weedrblow is something that I came up with when I was in Costa Rica. Picture a dude trying to sell you something, he shows you watches for sale like a good beach vendor would do but he asks you weed? or blow?

What's weedrblo? I ask after the encounter. That's right, I had no desire to waste his time, test his patience or belittle his chosen profession with such a dumb question. He might think I am making fun of him and oh how the tides could turn in this beach town on the Pacific coast.

Well, since then it's been a topic of conversation, a memory about a memory. It's kinda cool how they build on each other.
