I love ice cream. I didn't always, believe it or not. But once I started dating my boyfriend, the Ross-a-tron, I quickly learned how amazing--and delightful--ice cream really is. Whenever we celebrate something (a good semester, a good day at work, a Tuesday), we have ice cream. And not just any ice cream. We almost always have Breyers Cookies & Cream, topped with Smucker's Special Recipe Hot Fudge and Reese's Pieces.
It's so good it should be illegal.
Affiliated Agent M of Houston also sees the importance of ice cream in daily life, especially during the hot summer down there in the south!

She tells us about her first mission:
It has been really, really hot and humid here in Houston lately. It’s typical summer weather for us, but that certainly doesn’t make it easier.
When it’s this hot I always feel bad for retail workers at stores with carts. I see men and women of all ages corralling up carts that shoppers leave in the parking lot. It’s hot work that’s typically unappreciated.
I decided to help one of these workers cool off with a gift card to Cold Stone Creamery. After work I stopped at a nearby Kroger grocery store. I found a cart that had been left way far out from the store, away from the corrals.
I tied my gift onto the basket so that the employee who ended up walking way out there would find a fun surprise.
This was my first mission and I really enjoyed it! Can’t wait for mission 2.
We can't wait for your Mission #2, either! Thanks for your kindness and for thinking of those people who do the jobs we take for granted. Way to go!
