What the....?

I look out my window and you would not believe what I see! I have to blink back the tears it's just so insane! My ex boyfriend has an ice cream truck stuck in a snow drift. He is spinning his tires and spewing up snow. The weather man said there was a small chance of some late night flurries but he was way off, there must be at least a foot or more out there! Anyway, he sees me laughing and steps out of the truck. When I see what he has on, I fall to the floor in hysterics.

He walks toward me in a Sasquatch costume holding two Eskimo Pies. I open my door to let him in out of the blizzard. The klutzy Sasquatch slips on ice and lands on his butt throwing the Eskimo Pies at my face. "There goes my diet." I say as I lick it off. He gets up and takes off the mask. I ask him why he is driving an ice cream truck dressed as Sasquatch. He tells me that he realizes how much I mean to him and knows that he messed up. He was hoping that I would find the ice cream truck cute and that I would take him back. As for the Sasquatch costume, he explains that it's all he had to keep warm in the snow storm and just went with it.

I am stunned. My feet are frozen to the floor and I just stare at him. He says my name a few times and snaps his fingers in my face. I pick up a melting Eskimo Pie and take a bit. I find that when I eat I can think. Is he serious? Can I take him back? I do miss him. He says my name again. I raise my index finger at him indicating to wait. I walk outside to my car to be alone. I grab another Eskimo Pie out of the truck as I pass it. Sitting in my car I make a mental list of the pros and cons of getting back together with him.

I didn't see the man jump out of the tow truck and walk towards my car. I have been avoiding him for weeks now, playing a little game of hide-the-car with the Repo Man. He was about to slap the ticket to my windshield when a little old man in a trench coat pushed him down into the snow hard. The Repo Man made an accidental snow angel. The little old man took this opportunity to flash his little willy to the world! Then I hear Sasquatch grunting and yelling. He runs towards the Repo Man and scares him. He got up faster than a porno star ready to film yelling "Forget it lady! You win keep the damn car!"

I look out my window towards Sasquatch with tears of confusion in my eyes. He takes off his mask, opens my door, and reaches to wipe the tears away. He says three words to me. "I love you. " I smile and return the words to him.

He asks what my plans are for the rest of the day. I laugh, because there is no way a plane can take off in this snow, and tell him, "I'm spending it with you."

This was fun to write! I couldn't just pick one idea, so I used all them. Hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it.
