Things I Never Noticed

While driving up Butler Street toward the Highland Park Bridge a while back, I saw an ice cream place near the zoo entrance. I popped in for whatever it is they call a Blizzard there and sat down to eat.

I notice that the name of the place is Tastee-Freez. Given how my brain works, John Cougar Mellencamp's "Jack and Diane" started playing in my head. Then I got to the second stanza, the part about "suckin' on chili dogs outside the Tastee-Freez." I take a quick look at the other wall, and they serve chili dogs at this place, too.

This place is part of a chain that I'd never seen until then (even though Yahoo Maps says their Akron location is where I know for a fact to be a Shell station). For the last two decades I'd always thought that the name of the ice cream place was made up.
