If the ice cream truck is playing music, it means they are out of ice cream.
Everytime i heard i the icecream truck i thought that if you were quick enough you would be able to hide in his freezer and eat all the icecream you wanted LOL
my parents told me that the ice cream van was realy the child catcher from chitty chitty bang bang , needless to say as soon as the bells were chiming i was under the stairs im a very nervous person now hee hee
i used to think that the ice cream man went into hibernation in the winter....
i used to think that ice cream guys would kidnap kids and you could find little bits of kids in the ice cream. i always feared the face-shaped ones the most coz i thought those were heads of kids.
thank you to my little-kid insomnia and late night specials!!!
When I was younger, my dad had me convinced that the noise from the houses on the neighborhoods AC was the ice cream man making his ice cream... I believed him until I was probably 10...
My husband's family used to go hill walking a lot when he was a very small boy. In order to encourage him up the slopes his father used to tell him that there was an icecream van at the top of the hill. Needless to say when they did get to the top they had always just missed the van, luckily his dad could always see it at the top of the next peak... He was a teenager before he finally realised that he never was going to get that icecream.
We didn't have a lot of extra money to buy ice cream whenever we felt like it, so my mom told me and my sister that we didn't have an ice cream man in the area, only a music man. We thought that the music man was just a big fan of ice cream with his ice cream wall paper, and that he was just driving by to play a little music for us.
Until my son was about six, I had him believing the ice cream truck was "the music truck" that a nice old man drove around to make everyone feel happy.
When he got in first grade and saw kids buying ice cream after school, I told him that was a new thing they had just started doing!
my mum used to tell me that it wasnt the ice cream man it was the potato man selling potatoes.meany!!!!
When I was two or three my mom told me the ice cream truck was the Music Truck. His job was to come around and play music. (Every time he came around I had to "go inside" and "help my mom")
I used to think that ice cream vans were "kid police". The police in my neighborhood drove around in van-like cars, and since I knew that police arrested adults, and that their cars played "music" when they were chasing somebody, I thought that the music coming from the ice cream vans meant the kid police were coming to arrest me.
My dad used to tell me that the ice cream vendors from the ice cream trucks tasted every ice cream, thus they had their saliva.
Obviously, I never wanted an ice cream from them and a few times my dad caught me spying on ice cream trucks trying to discover the vendor licking the ice cream.
Ice Cream Vans
As a child I was informed by my mother that all ice cream vans only sold cigarettes in the evening,so I was wasting my time asking for one when I heard the tinkling music after tea. I still half believe this to be true.
when i was about two my mum said the ice cream vans only came on a sunday. So if i heard the music on another day my mum sayed it was naughty boys playing music and in winter she said the ice cream van only sold drinks. i believed this for about 4 years.
When I was younger I lived in a terraced street...Me and my friends would all play out the back, climb trees, knock on doors, that sort of stuff. Anyway, there were always icecream men that came, 3 or four a day. Well because all kids have eyes bigger than there bellies, i wanted an icecream from every van that came. My mam clearly didnt like this so she told me that all the icecream had spiders in them except one van who was coincedently the cheapest. From then on I believed this and my mam saved lots of money!
My mom told us that the ice cream van was a "music truck", that rode around the neighborhood making nice music for everyone. Finally, my older sister went to day camp, and found out the truth. She said, "you know what! The music truck *sells ICE CREAM*!"
Sometimes during the summer in my sort-of poor neighborhood, this certain ice cream truck would make the rounds as late as 9 PM, when it was already dark and no kids were outside. We didn't actually believe it, but my sister and I had this theory that that ice cream truck was actually peddling drugs. We thought there was probably some sort of code, like 'Screwball pop' was, after 9 PM, the code word for 'cocaine'.
I used to belive my Dad when he told me that if the ice-cream van was playing a tune, it meant that it was empty. When I asked about why people were queueing up, he would reply "well, they're going to be very disappointed". I didn't get an ice-cream for years.
my friend used to believe that when the ice cream van ran out of icecream, they made the music...needless to say she never got to buy icecream from them
