April & Clay’s Imaginary Tropical Vacation Part 2


See the previous episode of Clay and April’s Imaginary Tropical Vaction here, or not.

After Clay and I had shared a few hours at the beach we decided to walk down the street to the most adorable old drugstore that still has a fully operational soda fountain and lunch counter.  As you can see it was packed with all the sunburned beach bunnies.


Check out the menu.  All you need is a pocket full of change and you’ve got yourself a cup o’ joe.

Oh look!  The beach bunnies have arrived.  Clay and I ordered our usual flavor of shakes; him strawberry and me vanilla.  While we waited for them to be made I decided to browse around and look at the merchandise.  Maybe I would pick up a nice gift for P-Dub.


I couldn’t decide between this upside down hanging doll with a thick layer of dust on her skirt or


this bag of Monkey Business gummi candy.  So hard to choose.


In the end I had to go with the Monkey Business gummi candy, because that smokey grey monkey?  It had delicious written all over it.


I swear I think we had stepped back in time.  Since we were already pretending to be on a tropical beach vacation in Kansas, it wasn’t too weird that we were suddenly thrust back to 1953, was it?


Why aren’t cash registers pretty now?  Did people think they were pretty back in 1953 or were they just another cash register?  Will my children know what I’m talking about when I say cash register?  Isn’t it refreshing not to see the mc/visa logo on it?  Yes, it is.

How was our shakes you ask?  Let’s ask Clay.  I wonder if I could go through a day without calling him an Idiot?  I don’t think so.
