Wednesday night at Super Star East China Buffet

The bowl was only slightly larger than his cupped hands, which held it aloft like some sort of holy relic.  As small as the bowl may have been, it almost overflowed with a tower of soft-serve ice cream, whipped cream, nuts, sprinkles and at least three cherries.  It was a dessert fit for a king.  His eyes were so large that they looked about to pop out of his small head at the sight of such a monstrosity.  Ignoring the diners around him, he carefully made a bee-line for his table, where he was promptly scolded by his mother for eating more dessert than dinner.

But he didn’t care.  For this, my friends, was a small child who had discovered the joy of a self-serve ice cream buffet.

    When you want ice-cream, you just gotta have it!
