Where are the waffle cones?
I love ACU. I really do. But you can’t expect me not to get a little upset when they take away my waffle cones. It was one big tease. One. Big. Lie.
I remember the first day waffle cones entered my life at ACU. It was one of those events that just made the whole day special. I felt especially proud to be a Wildcat.
And then they took it away thinking no one would notice or care? Those sub-par substitute cones have the consistency of cardboard and the taste of dirt to me now. Giving us the best and then taking it away was cruel.
I believe the character Bane did something similar to Gotham in The Dark Knight Rises. And I quote, “I learned here that there can be no true despair without hope. So, as I terrorize Gotham, I will feed its people hope to poison their souls.”
We are Gotham. ACU is Bane. They fed us hope and poisoned our souls. That might be a little dramatic, but I’m really craving a waffle cone with strawberry cheesecake ice cream right now.
My next point of concern is the overcrowding in the Bean. It’s forcing me to eat healthily because the only food without a line the same size as the one for the Titan at Six Flags is the salad line. Plus I’ve lost my appetite for ice cream. I remember the good ol’ days when there were enough seats for my friends to sit together and when you could actually hear the Piano Man over the chatter. It’s a stressful experience now.
But hey, let’s focus on some good. You can now enter the library through a new, convenient entrance. That’s nice. Saves some time. The new milkshake machine that also includes smoothies and fun animations of a cow is a wonderful addition to the food court as well. But I’m trying to not get attached in case they decided to take that away from me too.
ACU, why did you waffle with the waffle cones?
