Last night Theresa and I were taking a walk when we spotted a person smoking a cigarette and enjoying a strawberry ice cream cone AT THE SAME TIME. We tried to recall if we had ever witnessed such a thing before, and concluded that we had not. Later that evening we related our sighting to the members of the Ivan Bonar Appreciation Society, who had gathered for an organizational dinner. "I used to see that all the time in New York," someone reported. We were surprised!
