I bet your parents sometimes make you go to work with them. Sometimes I like going to work with my mom, but I always love going to my dad’s store. He owns the Baskin-Robbins in Northport. You should go there on Tuesdays — you can get a sundae for free after buying two. We have 40 flavors of ice cream and warm cookies. My dad has been in the ice-cream business for 20 years but has owned the Baskin-Robbins for four years. I like to help with the customers. I mostly work the cash register. I also help keep the store clean. I like to help decorate the cakes. I can’t write on them but I do get to help decorate them. I once decorated a cake and my dad liked it so much, he decorated several cakes the same way — it sold six times! The store is located at 834c Fort Salonga Rd., Northport (online: Hope you can go! Our store is very popular, especially on Friday nights. There are a lot of things you can get and my favorite is the Oreo Mint Chocolate ice cream.
