On the hot summer day, the passing ice-cream truck sang with hope. Todd raced to the front yard in delight with change in his pocket. With great disappointment, he soon realized the truck was already 5 houses passed his own. In total rage, he shuffled to the garage to grab his bike. As he anxiously rode forward he was in complete unbelief as the truck seemed to have driven so far off. With each pedal, more aggressive than the next, Todd finally caught up to the truck. He was in complete ecstasy as he sucked on his fudge pop.
