The day Diary Queen ran out of ice cream

Several years ago, I took the family to Dairy Queen to get some ice cream. We went to the drive thru and I gave the orders.

“I’m sorry sir, but we are out of ice cream.”

“You’re out of ice cream?” I asked in disbelief.

“Yes sir, we are out of ice cream.”

I probably should have refrained, but I spontaneously said, “But you’re DIARY QUEEN.”

There was no response on the other end and I drove away without any ice cream.

Of course, they knew they were Diary Queen. They knew their business was ice cream. But, for some reason they failed to keep the main thing the main thing.

Honestly, I sometimes want to tell people – but you’re a CHRISTIAN. When people fail to keep the main thing the main thing, then secondary things come to take first place.
