Stalking the ice cream truck: my interview with Smiley's armpit

Generally in the mornings on my way to work, I listen to the Smiley Morning Show. Today, Smiley and his co-host K.J. had commandeered an ice cream truck and were driving through the city giving away free ice cream to beat the heat.

Well, you know how I feel about ice cream. Combine that with how I much I enjoy the SMS and of course I had to go find them. Locating them was pretty easy. They were live broadcasting from the ice cream truck. So I found them at Monument Circle downtown, rolled my window down and thanked K.J. as she handed me an Astro Bomb Pop Jr.


After I drove off, I snapped the pics of the pop and thought, "I should totally blog about this!" I decided to drive back around to take a picture of Smiley and K.J. handing out the goods. But when I got back around to where they had been parked, the ice cream truck was driving off. 

Because I will do anything for this blog, I followed the ice cream truck in hot pursuit. About 4 blocks later, they pulled over in front of an office building. I pulled over too, hopped out of the car with my trusty iPhone with the intention of taking a few pictures. Which I did:


Then I remembered that this new phone has a video record feature. Suh-weet! So when Smiley started to interview me live on the radio, I switched the camera to video mode and recorded the encounter, too. 

I am not a professional videographer, as evidenced by what ultimately turned out to be my interview with Smiley's armpit:

Ahhhhhhh!!! I'm so glad you tracked them down! hahaha! I heard that broadcast, and as I pulled into work this morning I had my windows rolled down and could ever so faintly hear the ice cream truck the next two blocks over. I've wanted ice cream ALL MORNING. You might just be my hero today.

That is HILARIOUS. Does Smiley know about his armpit's 15 minutes of blog fame?

I can assist you in your camera work. I don't have many gifts, but holding a video camera and shooting myself is one of them.

At least you remembered to use your phone. Whenever I see something I totally forget I can take pictures or record with my phone. D'oh.
