I was amused as I watched her dig with glee into this mountain of ice cream. She enjoyed so much just watching it drip from her spoon. I remember all the times I told her mother "just eat your food, don't play with it". As I get older I think perhaps we are missing part of the experience of eating when we don't use all of our senses to enjoy our food. After all what harm does it really do to, touch it, smell it, or listen to the sound it makes as it plops back in the dish. Perhaps Miss Emily who wrote the book of manners back in 1819 can tell me why. As a grandmother I see no reason why not!
Oh yummy, big bites are so much fun.
Wow! good to the very last spoonful
So I hope you will enjoy not just your ice cream but all life has to offer with all your senses. I don't care what Miss Emily says. Go ahead! color outside the lines, let your ice cream drip from the spoon just to hear the plop, sit and listen to the birds even if your late for your dentist appointment. Live life to it's fullest!
