Such a dad thing to do (although I probably would too)

I peeved over at the Peevery about dropping my breakfast and it totally reminded me of something funny. I was with Stephen and Ben at this fancy ice cream place in the U district. (I think it is the U District, I'm not really sure where the lines are drawn... maybe it is actually Greenwood or Greenlake... how have I lived here 6 years and I still don't get that??) (According to their own website it is Wallingford.) There was a dad and two daughters sitting at a little table near us. The little girl did the thing that if I was her age would've totally made me cry... she took a big lick of her cone and proceeded to knock the scoop onto the floor. The dad bent over and picked it up. He took some napkins out of the dispenser and wiped it off and then plopped it back on her cone. He kind of mashed it in to make sure it didn't happen again and she resumed consumption. I don't blame the dad. I totally would've done the same thing. :)

You just made me cry...

I love being a dad.

Greenlake is closer to the lake. Phinney is west ridge of Greenlake.
Tangletown is southeast of Greenlake.
Greenwood is north of Greenlake and Phinney (a few miles actually).
Wallingford is the section between Lake Union, Tangletown, Fremont, and I5.

I think Tangletown doesn't exist. I have never heard of this so it must be imaginary. :)

Also, I don't mean anything disparaging about dads. Just that in general they tend to be a little less fussed about that kind of stuff than moms would be.
