At lunch today (in a beautiful garden outside in the sunshine) a workmate and I were discussing the finer points of enjoying ice cream. This discussion came about because I have plans to leave in approximately 39 minutes for a "fresh air" break that will involve a trip to a nearby ice cream shop. This work friend, he was reminiscing about buttermilk ice cream that he had tried in Wisconsin, and my mouth started watering at the thought of some Amy's Mexican vanilla from Austin. We agreed that ice cream in a cone that you buy from a store is immeasurably better than ice cream from a carton that remains in your freezer for a while, although neither of us know why this is. And it also should go without saying that ice cream in a cone is much better than ice cream in a cup. Everyone knows that.
