New Thing #323: Ice Try
Ah, the things you miss out on when you grow up in San Diego and your childhood winters consist of... wearing long sleeves and not going to the beach? As often? Aside from never having had a proper snowball fight (hurry up, sticking snow!) or a white Christmas, I also never got to play around with liquids in freezing temperatures, so today I made a popsicle outside. Well, am making. I filled a water bottle part way with orange juice and stuck a chopstick through the cap after Kevin drilled a hole in it. Then we put it in the trunk of his car, where tonight's teen temperatures will surely get to it (I wanted to put it on the fire escape, but he pointed out that it would blow away and that his trunk gets plenty frosty). So tomorrow on the way to work I will have a fruity snack to enjoy on the way to the subway.
