Making "doing the dishes" very delicious

* If I had to pick between a regular cake cone and a waffle cone, oh boy, I would definitely pick the waffle cone!
* How many other "dishes" can be eaten? Many years ago, our family liked eating at Italian Oven Restaurant, where hollow raw noodles were used as drink straws. They probably were not meant to be eaten, but we did anyway!
* Taco bowls are often edible. Almost exactly one year ago, I had a flying taco for lunch, just north of the Mexican border. Tortillas, too, could be considered a dish.
* For ideas of what to put inside of an ice cream cone, consider Simple Miracle #67.

69. DADS

We wouldn't be here without them

* In two days, scores of thousands of Americans will gather in Washington DC to sorrowfully recall the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, a Supreme Court decision that federally legalized abortion in 1973. This simple miracle is intended to be a salute to all fathers who have provided support and encouragement when their child's mother considered abortion, as well as a prayer for all fathers who bear the painful regret of a child killed by abortion.
* Compare this simple miracle to one in the past. Hooray for our parents!

The pain-free solution to putting on new boots

* When my old friend from college, Nick Hill, suggested this simple miracle to me (Thanks Nick!), I didn't even know what a shoe horn was!
* Apparently, its name suggests its application and origin: Years ago, animal horns were used to help people fit their feet into their shoes without ruining the shoes. Nowadays, materials like wood or metal have replaced actual horns.
* How many extra months or years could I have gotten out of some of my favorite shoes, if I had but had a shoe horn!

Of course!

* Do you know anyone who doesn't like ice cream? Is it possible to not like ice cream?
* My housemate Tobias wondered what it would be like to introduce ice cream to someone who came from a culture that did not have ice cream? How overwhelmed would they be?
* Happy New Year! Last week, I decided that I would try to start a tradition of eating ice cream every year at midnight on New Year's Eve.
* For my first bowl of ice cream of the new year, I had spumoni. What is your favorite ice cream flavor?
