WHY ARE WE NOT TALKING ABOUT THIS REDDIE MOMENT FROM THE BOOK:
(Eddie comes over to Stan and Richie who are eating Rocket ice creams)
Eddie said, a little out of breath. “How about a lick on your Rocket?”
“Your mom wouldn’t approve, Eddie,” Richie said sadly. He began to eat faster. He had just gotten to the chocolate stuff in the middle, his favorite part. “Germs, boy! Ah say … Ah say you kin get germs eatin after someone else!”
“I’ll chance it,” Eddie said.
Reluctantly, Richie held his Rocket up to Eddie’s mouth … and snatched it away quickly as soon as Eddie had gotten in a couple of moderately serious licks.
