Plead with Mummy to please stop
"just taking the nuts off the top"
of your Cornetto.
The nuts disappeared a long time ago and she knows it.
Go ahead and stick it on your nose.
Inhalation of ice cream does no harm whatsoever.
Tease Mummy every now and then by standing still for minutes
at a time without even looking at your Cornetto,
holding it at funny angles so that it might
just drip all over the carpet.
Eat very slowly so as to maximise the application of
Cornetto beard and 'tache.
Then you know you've done it right.
