Jackson, Jackson, Make Up Your Mind!
ON A BLAZING hot summer day, the Johnson family piled into their rusty, old station wagon. Behind Mom and Dad sat Joseph and Jeffrey. Then Julie and Jolene in the row in between. Next came Jocelyn, Justin, and Jackson, all crowded in back. They were headed to Zindel’s Ice Cream Shoppe.

When they got to Zindel’s, they joined the end of a long line winding halfway down the block.

“What flavor ice cream are you going to get?” asked Dad.

Joseph answered right away, “Luscious Red Licorice!”

“My favorite, Caramel Apple Nut,” said Jeffrey.

Julie exclaimed, “I’m going to have Peppermint Crunch.”

Jolene said, “Minty Minty Chocolate Chip for me.”

“Strawberry Cheesecake is my favorite!” said Jocelyn.

Justin sang, “I can’t live without Cherry Berry!”

Jackson thought and thought. Everyone turned to look at him, waiting for his answer. Finally, Jackson said, “I don’t know what kind of ice cream I want.”

“What?” said everyone.

“But there are so many fantastic flavors to choose from,” said Dad.
