Out with caution!

Some things in life are to be attacked with absolute abandon.

Caelan knows that peas, potatoes and beans are to be respected and treated with caution. Not so ice cream. It invites not only ingestion but absorption.

Sometimes we hold back from rich experiences in life because of over-caution (see my jumping in puddles post from a few months back). Kids are a good reminder to us that occasionally it pays to throw caution and reserve to the wind.

There’s nothing like the pleasant indignity of having to deal with a running ice cream on a super hot day. There’s something fun about sharing dripping ice creams with a bunch of friends, something that reminds us that caution isn’t always everything it’s cracked up to be.

So if you’ve become the ‘over-cautious’ type with the passage of time, this might be just the time to grab yourself a chocolate ice cream and sit in the sun.
