Peanut Butter and Chocolate Ice Cream

Dear Gram C,

I remember that whenever we would go out for ice cream you always got Peanut Butter and Chocolate. I would ask why you didn’t get something different or try something new and you simply said, “Because I like this” and hold your cone up.

And I also remember that you always used to tell me when we had a disagreement that someday I would see, and say, “Wow, Grandma sure knew what she was talking about.”

Well, now I can say that you were right and sure knew what you were talking about. Everytime I step up to the counter and order a scoop of PB&C, I think of you. And when anyone asks why I chose something so simple, I lift my cup and say, “Because I like this.”

Love you,
Ong
