Politician Sighting: Alberto Gonzalez, Tainting My Local Ice Cream Parlor

August 12, 2008 at 11:34 am 2 comments


I was grabbing some ice cream with my parents while in town last night at one of our favorite places, just outside of DC. My mom and I were ordering, and when I brought my cup back to our table, my Dad’s eyes went wide as he whispered fervently to me, “Alberto Gonzalez is behind your mother!” I looked behind my mom in the icecream line. What? All I saw was a big caucasian frat-yeti of some kind. “Que?” I asked him. “No, he can understand you!” my dad quickly responded. I looked again at the tables behind my mother, and lo and behold, there sat Bertie G, enjoying ice cream with his family.

How does that ice-cream taste, Alberto? I wonder what flavor you were enjoying. Yellow cake, maybe?

This was definitely better than the time Scooter Libby stood behind me at P.F. Chang’s on New Years. But yes men are all the same, and unfortunately, they all live where I grew up.

    I’m sure if you asked him which flavor he was eating, he’d have to decline to answer due to the fact that he just doesn’t recall ever eating ice cream in his entire life.

    Hahaha. You’re totally right. It’s a good thing he left as soon as we all sat down, because my Dad was mustering up the nerve to say something really snarky.
