The Law of Pinocchio vs. The Law of the Harvest
In any case, when I was a twenty-something year old, I went with a friend to Baskin Robbins and we decided in place of lunch (that was our first bad choice), we would order something called an earthquake. I don't know if they still have this on the menu but it was a huge dish of about 8 scoops of ice cream covered with chocolate syrup, nuts, whipped cream... pretty much everything they had. It was a monstrous dish and as I recall we ate the WHOLE THING! By the time we left the ice cream shoppe and walked a few stores over... I was in serious trouble. I remember begging a movie theater to let me in so I could get to the bathroom in the nick of time. I'll spare you the personal details but suffice it to say, thirty something years later... I HAVE NEVER TRIED TO EAT A WHOLE EARTHQUAKE AGAIN!!!!!
