High School Students and the Ice Cream Truck

Deeply settled into conversation about Everything related to sexuality and human beings, 100% focussed, with not a single chance that anything could take our focus, the light-feathered jingle of the ice cream truck coming up the hill launched every single high school student out of the classroom and into the street, stocking-footed, tennis-shoed, and bare-footed, racing down the hill and up the hill and around the corner to chase the ice cream truck.

We were laughing and grinning, flagging down cars, unstoppable.

Soon our hands were full of blue and red dyes, our mouths full of chocolate and peppermint, our hearts full of merriment.

We never know what our evenings together will bring, but they're always filled with wonder, learning, and joy.
