Thank God for Summer's Army!

The biggest and best difference between Parkdale and Riverdale I've noticed so far?
The Ice Cream trucks!!!
Mr. Softee! Mr. Soft Serve! Dippity-Doo! Dairy King!
No matter where I am in the house, I can hear one of those delightful gentlemen rolling down my street with their merry tune dancing on the air, floating me out of my seat and onto a sea of fancy! Parkdale's finest hour!

Riverdale, on the other hand, only had the Knife Sharpener come to visit. Hearing the tinny clang of "The Blade Runner"s bell doesn't excite the imagination in the same way visions of slush puppies and twist cones do.

Of course, I never had to fight crack whores and degenerates for a place in line by the knife sharpening truck.

Do I let the Riverdale Blade Runner touch my Ikea knives? Or will they melt like chocolate over his stone?

Ever use him? He dings by my place every so often.

The answer is a) melt like chocolate.
I took him one of my lame knives once, and he wouldn't sharpen it because it was too lame.
Or, more correctly, he told me there was "nothing to sharpen--nothing!" I think that I insulted him by taking him that knife.

Oh, shit. *LOL* The man's a shill and you insulted him. Classic!
