Julia, blonde curls bouncing, blue eyes determined, definitely knew which one she wanted because when she was offered the Blackberry Delight in a tasty children's cone, she just went bezack. "Blue! Blue!", she hollered. The person dispensing gelato was pretty savvy and quickly dumped the blue ice cream and asked Julia to point to the one she wanted. "Blue! Blue!" she said, pointing at strawberry. I was so delighted that I left a tip bigger than the cost of the ice cream, and walking home, felt privileged to be covered in pink, pink dairy melt.
Julia is now coming on 10, and she just sent us her first draft of a poster she intends to distribute widely in her neighbourhood. She is still the girl who knows what she wants.
