Chocolate Egg Creams

I was in Springfield, Mass. on business one very hot July afternoon with two other ex-Brooklynites, when I suddenly had the uncontrollable urge for a chocolate egg cream. I said as much to the others and they entirely agreed, but where can you get an egg cream in the sticks? Well we found a luncheonette and I asked the guy behind the counter to make us three large chocolate ice cream sodas but to leave out the ice cream. The guy looked at me as if I had three heads and didn't even know what to charge, but I said to charge us for three ice cream sodas and he could eat the ice cream himself. Ah, heaven. It wasn't Meyers or Juniors or Dubrows, but when you're in the wilderness who could complain?
