Have you ever have one of those days when you just had to have something that you haven’t had in a long time?
Today was one of those days.
I had to go to the Korean Exchange Bank during my lunch hour, which is about a 20-minute walk from SolBridge. I could have taken a taxi, but I love walking and the weather today, a chilly 49 degrees was perfect.
After I finished up my banking, and freaking out at the US Dollar/Korean Won exchange rate ($1.00 = 1123 won; thanks a lot, North Korea, for scaring the bejesus out of everyone and f**king up the exchange rate) I decided to stop at Mickey D’s on the way back to school for lunch.
And it was just about when I was finished eating when I suddenly had this urge for a milkshake. Yeah, a vanilla milkshake just like the kind Billy has in Ice Cream Headache.
Of course, where I am going to find that kind of milkshake in Daejeon, not to mention Korea? That’s the problem with urges in Korea. They can’t always be assuaged.
That’s when you have to improvise. In this case, I ordered one at Mickey D’s. Not exactly the real thing, but for now it would do.
On the other hand, Ice Cream Headache is the real thing.
That’s what everyone has been telling me.
