I hope Julia does. She wanted something HUGELY imaginative, so I thought this might do it!

Thanks so much, Sara. She wanted "HIGHLY" imaginative, so I'm hopeful.

I feel your pain, Milt. When subway first opened in the UK, ordering felt like an exam. What length, what bread, what filling, what salad, hot or cold, take out, eat in, star sign… ok, I made that one up. Good luck in the contest. Terry

Thanks, Terry. Nope, that's pretty much how it is. So many decisions, decisions, decisions!

I can do that, too, but it's third on my list. I love chocolate brownies, fudge, but ice cream not so much for some reason.

Lol, nothing beats ice cream on a hot day, I'm a rum and raisin man myself. Tom

I'm much more inclined to drink a cold soda!

HA! Julia asked for "HUGELY imaginative" and you brought it. It's one of my favorite flavors.
