Well, folks, we don’t know what the weather’s like where you live, but here in Germany it’s freaking hot at the moment! Everybody’s just wanting to get a nice cool cone of ice cream at the friendly shop around the corner.

Who will serve you your dessert? Show us some of your own daydreams that will hopefully provide us with some refreshment!
