Meggie always loved ice cream – it reminded her of summer and staying up late because there wasn’t any school. She liked cones best but ice cream was also good in a cup because she could take her time eating it and it didn’t drip down the side of the cone onto her clothes. Some of her favorites were chocolate chip, butter pecan, and peppermint stick (because the bits of peppermint turned the ice cream pink.) What could be better than ice cream?
This question was answered when she went to Italy several years later and she discovered gelato. It wasn’t just the creamy taste and smooth texture that she liked. Even the presentation was charming with fluffy mountains of gelato adorned with flowers and fruit.
Soon she was looking for signs for gelato shops. This became a daily adventure in Italy and there were so many inviting places wherever she went.
After some careful thought Meggie decided that it really wasn’t necessary to choose. Ice cream and gelato are both delicious!
