I call them Mint Chocolate Chip moments, and each one is seared into my mind. Some with dad at the beach, others with Grandma and Winnie The Pooh, a few with Neil on the couch via UberEats or after our Sunday night movies in those early days of dating.
They don’t happen all the time, which is part of what makes them so memorable. So is letting them happen when they do; just letting the craving and the desire for the sweetness exist without thinking too much about what it means. That is how you are able remember the moments and details, like way the flat, flaky chocolate chips push their way out of the scoop and how that timeless blue-green color mazes it’s way down my softening sugar cone.
