#37: Cool Treats
July is National Ice Cream Month!
There’s nothing like a refreshing ice cream cone or a milkshake, especially in this hot summer weather.
What is your favorite flavor of ice cream? Do you eat it in a dish or on a cone? With what toppings do you like? When you describe your favorite ice cream dish, use your senses, especially taste, touch and sight. Be sure to include how eating it makes you feel.
Feel free to do research – eat ice cream – during this exercise.
