Years later, the boy would ask him “Grandpa, were you there for the Froyo Wars?”
“Yes, little Billy, I was there.”
“What was it like?”
“Twas a long time ago, after the Cupcake Wars but before the famous Battle of French Toast. Pinkberry on Amsterdam between 79th and 80th fought valiantly, they used all the fresh-cut fruit and chocolate toppings they could muster. But the Yogurtland on the corner of 80th and Amsterdam overpowered them. No one can resist a pump-your-own fro-yo dispenser. The end was swift. It was a cold and unforgiving January and nobody in their right mind was eating fro-yo anyway.”
