Remember when every problem could be fixed with ice cream? Whether it was a scraped knee or the mean kid at school called you names or your favorite Barbie lost an arm. All your tears could be washed away when your dad would pull out the ice cream and two bowls. You could sit on the back step, enjoying your special treat with your best bud and somehow, the world was right again.

Whatever happened to those days? Why can’t you solve your financial problems with some Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough? End the tension between you and your husband with 2 scoops of Butterscotch Ripple? I think as adults we forget that special innocence we once had as children. That perhaps if we could get it back, just for a moment, that all the things we complain and worry about would somehow become silly and go away.

Perhaps George Bush and Saddam Hussein should have sat down and shared a tub of Heavenly Hash and a peaceful resolution could have been reached in the Gulf War. Maybe we should all look to our children for guidance when it comes to the problems of the world. I bet if we all took a step back to those days, the world would be a nicer, peaceful place.

I urge all of you to try it the next time you have a bad day. Get out the ice cream and two bowls and share 2 scoops of your favorite ice cream with your loved one on the back step. I bet you that your world will suddenly become right again with the first spoonful.
