But one too many trips to a certain soft serve machine in the cafeteria left her feeling worse for the wear and regretting her sweet tooth quite dreadfully.

So she tried as she might to give up sweets. But after months of saying ‘no’ to her favorite frozen dessert in an attempt to practice restraint, she finally gave in and the two were reunited once again. (cue: *embrace*)

From that day forward there wasn’t a week that went by that the girl didn’t have an ice cream cone at least once.
