The Ice Cream Man

…There were two ice cream vans that came around
Mr. Softee and Mr. Whippy. Mainly on different days though on the odd occasions they would come round the same day. I never knew at the time but I was told later that ice cream rounds were very guarded territory so I suppose that there may have been words said to one another but I never saw anything like that. They always pulled up at where the most kids were playing together and everyone would disappear indoors coming out with either money to buy or with that very disappointed look. I experienced that disappointed look on more than one occasion…
