Remember back in the day when the biggest dilemma in your life was deciding between a cup or a cone, chocolate or rainbow sprinkles, or a scoop of Chocolate Fudge Brownie or Cookie Dough? Yeah, we miss those simpler times too.
Now you have to deal with those pesky adulthood things, like paying bills and remembering to do laundry before you run out of clean socks. All of these real-life responsibilities can certainly be stressful, but we have just the cure for that.
We’ve rounded up 5 adulting situations that can be made better with our tried-and-true remedy: a hearty scoop (or two) of ice cream.
Item number 1
Finding time to exercise
Between work, school, and trying to keep up with friends and family, finding time to stay fit can feel impossible. Some days, you just need to flex your scooping arm.
Item number 2
Handling life’s daily surprises
We get it -- you parked in a 15-minute spot to pick up lunch, but the burrito line moved slower than anticipated, so you come back to your car to find the “paper of doom” on your windshield. Moments like these are never fun, but it’s nothing that a scoop of Phish Food can’t cure.
Item number 3
Renewing your driver’s license
Renewing your driver’s license has never been - and will probably never be - an experience to look forward to. But after waiting in the long lines and sorting through paperwork that you didn’t know you needed in the first place, grab yourself a scoop of Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough to recover.
Item number 4
It’s Sunday night, you realize you’ve forgotten to do your laundry (again), and your dirty clothes pile may or may not have just moved on its own. Our best advice: take a deep breath, and stop for spoonfuls of Chocolate Fudge Brownie in between folding.
Item number 5
Cooking for yourself is an exciting part of adulthood, until your dinner plan goes up in flames (literally) and you either have to start from scratch or eat the leftover pizza from two Saturdays ago. But you know what you can’t mess up? Scooping ice cream.
