I’m sitting in the small Italian town of Corniglia, which is one of the five towns that are all connected by hiking trails, collectively known as Cinque Terre.
I spotted an item called “affogato al caffé”, or “ice cream with hot coffee”, on the menu at a small café yesterday, and have waited over 24 hours to fulfill my dreams and order one.
I would just like to inform the world that it’s everything I dreamed of and more, my life is complete. I am deeply indebted to whomever had the idea to combine my two favorite ingestible substances into one unbelievable cup of miracles.
So now I have a new favorite style of ice cream. That’ll teach Blue Bell to create a void in my life for months, and then put their ice cream back on the shelves precisely five days after I leave the country.
