My Response

So it turns out that being heartbroken and diving into some ice cream isn’t a new idea at all. Who knew? Good thing she had good friends to get her out of her funk. 🙂

  1. The lines about having some ice cream when she was supposed to be on a diet are priceless. It’s so typical of what so many of us do when we’re trying to stick to a diet.
