But do we regret it?
Being the eminently intelligent individuals that we are, we were pretty confident we’d figured out the ideal process for eating ice cream: put the spoon in the ice cream, then put the spoon in your mouth. But the key to a fulfilling life is always keeping your mind open to new experiences (that involve ice cream).
