Ever since I was a child I've wanted to get my tonsils removed. Days of missed school combined with a diet consisting of ice cream, popsicles, and pudding still sound just about like heaven. What I never learned is that if you wait until you're an adult to get this procedure done, the whole process lasts for around three weeks. That's three weeks of force feeding yourself enough ice cream and popsicles that you don't become malnourished and get put on an IV...I am only on day three.
Fortunately, there is a whole other food group that I have failed to mention so far, and it happens to be my favorite thing to eat in the entire world: snow cones! Not snow balls or shaved ice. Seriously, those are the worst. I'm talking about snow cones from the green snow cone stand in the Oaks District in Hattiesburg. These syrup drenched ice concoctions are the only things that have been pulling my through...along with my My Little Pony coloring book and of course my large bottle of liquid Lortab...but I think the snow cones are doing most of the heavy lifting.
