The other day I was questioning if ice cream season is still going on…then I drove past our local ice cream shop and it was PACKED. Social distance packed, of course. Since everyone has to stand 6 feet apart these days, the line was almost around the block. So yeah, I think ice cream is still going strong, which means it’s time for one more ice cream recipe before summer ends and fall squash takes over. I’m ready for some fall squash. Maybe I’ll just make a spaghetti squash ice cream and keep summer going the best I can. Whatcha think? Let’s do it.
So I’m about to take a SHARP left turn on ya. Strap in. Over the weekend, I had the house ALL to myself while my husband was away on a bachelor’s party. It was lovely. Mostly because I could watch all the true crime documentaries I wanted. My isn’t much of a true crime fan…or really a documentary fan. He falls asleep in 46 seconds as soon as I put a documentary on. But me…ooooh I’m glued to that screen. And this weekend I finally watched The Murder of Laci Peterson on Hulu. And it has me looking at life from a totally different angle. Before I thought Scott Peterson absolutely did it, but then after watching this documentary, I was reminded that I had the viewpoint solely based on what the media had said. I knew nothing about the trial or details from both sides. I based my opinion on what the media said and that was that. But now, after watching that podcast, I really have no clue. And I don’t think I should have an opinion because of it.
It was just such an interesting moment because really no one knows if he did it or not, but people don’t like the unknown so they just make the decision for themselves in order to not feel uncomfortable. The only person who I would trust to tell the truth is McKenzie, since she was the last one seen with Laci. Sadly, McKenzie is a dog soooooo. Dogs are the only people I trust, anyways. When will Elon Musk create a way to translate dogs thoughts? Come on, man! Anywho, it was a great reminder that as humans we hate the unknown, but sometimes we just gotta get comfortable with knowing that we don’t know. Ya know? I know the last thing you wanted to talk about was murder while thinking about ice cream, but here we are. Welcome to the world of PaleOMG! Now go watch that documentary while you enjoy this ice cream!
