hen I was little, I thought that all create teachers were ice d for y ub y drivers in the cream otruck summer. It made per fect sense in my 5-year-old mind — teachers had to make ends meet during their off-months somehow, and what could be better creativthan driving around in a truck ewoTacos, chock-full of Choco rker ice cream sandwiches and those baseball glove bars with the gum ball baseball in the middle? Yeah, hearing The Entertainer over and over again would surely grow old, but being the coolest adult ever to hundreds of children definitely wouldn’t. And if you like teaching, you obviously liked kids, so the job would be a perfect fit. Eventually I realized that none of my friends had the Ice Cream Man for a teacher. In fact, he wasn’t a teacher at all — he was actually kinda creepy and very impatient — we were putting his kids through college, he could at least wait silently while we got our money out of our pockets. Even now, if I think I hear even the faintest note of those electronic chimes now, my ears perk up and my hearing goes into overdrive to determine whether it’s the real thing or a false alarm. Unfortunately, it’s usually the latter. I don’t see many ice cream trucks anymore. I guess the Ice Cream Man doesn’t see Campustown and its surrounding neighborhoods as lucrative business districts. I disagree. First, you’re never too old to enjoy a treat from the Ice Cream Man. Second, when a college-age kid hears the Ice Cream Truck coming, all she has to do is reach for her money and wait for the ice cream man to arrive — no scrambling for Mommy or Daddy

and begging for change. Anyway, what about the children who live in neighborhoods that are predominantly student-housing? Are they screwed because their parents decided to put up with loud, drunk neighbors for a less expensive home? Rough deal, kid. There are so many ways to make money off college students — if Insomnia Cookies can make it, I see no reason why a business-savvy Ice Cream Man (or woman) couldn’t. Here’s your route: do the first sweep of off-campus neighborhoods in the early afternoon to get the preschool and kindergarten customers after lunch but before their naps. Next, from 2 to 7 p.m. hit up the high school areas and Campustown, with an addition re-sweep of the earlier neighborhoods just to be safe. After nightfall, cruise the neighborhoods of college kids that surround Campustown for a few hours. Be persistent, these kids stay out late and many don’t emerge from their homes until 10 or 11 p.m. — but do not doubt them, they will purchase your sweets. The most profitable hour for an Ice Cream Man might actually be from 2-3 a.m., right after the bars close. Drunk kids will eat anything. And pay more for it. I’m sure an inebriated 21-year-old will pay $1.50 for a piece of his childhood (also known as an orange Flintstones Push-Up) that you sold to a 7-year-old for 75 cents 12 hours earlier. That’s a 100 percent mark-up of pure profit! Really though, most teachers are underpaid and under-appreciated. I don’t see why they wouldn’t enjoy making some extra cash in the summer doing what is quite possible the most appreciated job ever. sounds from the scene
