This week's Weekly Photo Challenge at The Daily post at wordpress.com is "Happy"
Ice cream is a source of happiness I enjoy which I believe to be universal. I have NEVER met anyone who didn't like ice cream, I don't care the age or ethnicity. Even my asian friends who are not very fond of dairy products in general, will become giddy at the mention of italian style gelato. And what other sweet dessert comes with a time challenge? The melting aspect adds so much to the enjoyment :)
As you can see from my little study, young and old have their own characteristic approach. Young kids have a more immersive, the-devil-may-care style. They attack the frozen treat with a lot of abandonment and enthusiasm. Older folk have more of an healthy respect for the cone, keeping it at an arm's length, weary of both the blood sugar hit and the drippy mess potential. Go ahead, treat yourself!
