Tonight I had the pleasure of eating dinner with fellow Tumblrs Katie (and her husband Joost), Kiera, Heather (and her son), Sam and Brenna.
After dinner it was over to to Sebastian Joe’s for ice cream. We sat on the patio, talking and watching Brenna do something weird.
One could easily eat a hot dog from either end. That also works for a bananas or celery. I knew someone once who preferred to eat pizza starting with the crust. It never caused him any problems. Just try to tell me there’s a correct side of a hamburger to chomp into first. No candy bar wrapper ever had “open from this end” printed on it.
It would have never occurred to me though that when eating an ice cream cone someone would want to eat some of the ice cream and then bite off the bottom of the cone.
Yet I watched in amazement as Brenna did exactly that. Oh she claims there are good reasons for this. Something about letting air in. Who knew ice cream needed to breathe?
By working her way towards the middle of the cone Brenna says the last bite will have both ice cream and cone. She wouldn’t be caught dead, I guess, having the final mouthful contain only dry cone.
But Bob! Didn’t the melting ice cream come out the bottom of the cone and splatter on Brenna’s pants.
Yes. Yes it most certainly did.
The only photo I snapped tonight shows a horizontally held, open-ended cone and the joy Brenna gets from dripping ice cream on her pants.
