Yesterday my oldest son (K1) who is 9, got his cast off of his leg. Woo hoo! Well he still has to wear a boot, but it's removable, so that's HUGE! I decided that I would get him a celebratory Blizzard from Dairy Queen. We very rarely go to any fast food joints for meals, much less just for an ice cream treat, so it's a big deal around here!
I ordered him a small cheesecake Blizzard and the cashier said, "that'll be $3.02 please drive forward." WHAT?! Three bucks for a small milkshake thingy? WOAH. I was floored. I mean they are good, but DQ must be REALLY proud of their blizzards!
I guess I don't get out much, but man, I could totally buy at least a quart of ice cream at the grocery store for that price. Of course I paid for it and it made K1 super happy, so it was totally worth it. But geez!
To top it off, the DQ worker is supposed to turn it upside down right before serving it to you, and they didn't even do that! Oh well.
Is it just me, or is that one high-priced treat??
