I have loved sundae cones with a deep, passionate love since I was a very small child. I used to buy them from the ice cream truck; in my world they were the only frozen confection worth $2-3.
Then one day when I was not more than 9 or 10 years old (my mother verifies this figure) I realized that you could spend $5 at Aldi and get a box containing 6 (SIX!) sundae cones. Being a girl of very little allowance, I immediately jumped upon the opportunity. For the next long while (possibly years, but I don't remember clearly) whenever we heard the ice cream truck I would just go on reading my book or whatever I was doing, because I knew I had a stash of my favorite frozen confection waiting for me in the freezer.
My mother, reflecting upon this episode yesterday, says that was one of the things that made her realize I was a highly unusual child.
