The sizes are Like It, Love It and Gotta Have It. It’s not that hard.

1. Mixing ice cream can really take a toll on your forearms.

2. The singing. Oh dear god the singing.

3. Work always seems to follow you home.

I don't think I will ever get the smell of ice cream completely off my skin. #coldstoneprobs

I will permanently smell like a waffle cone by the end of the summer. #ColdstoneProbs
