     "Nina came to their table with a bowl of vanilla ice cream. They each took a spoonful, but passed  it along so that Jacob could have the lion's share.

     He sniffed it cautiously and asked Esther, 'Will I like this?'


     'Don't tell me you have never had ice cream before.' Tedi gasped.

     After one tentative spoonful, he smiled at the five watching women and said, 'This is good.'

     He inhaled the rest while they interrupted one another debating the merits of flavors he had yet to taste: chocolate, strawberry, coffee, caramel.

     But after he licked the bowl clean, Jacob declared, 'This is my favorite, forever.'
