NIGHT JASMINE: the "Ice Cream" Scene

I am deeply amused. Little did I realize, five years ago, when I wrote my favorite scene in The Temptation of the Night Jasmine, in which Eloise and her best friend Pammy speculate as to the ice cream flavor of their various male acquaintances, that they were actually ahead of the scientific curve.

According to a recent article in the Daily Mail, there’s been an entire study conducted on the premise that “personality traits can be matched with the type of ice cream you put in your cone”.

Who knew that Eloise and Pammy were on to something there?

For your amusement, here’s the ice cream flavor scene from Night Jasmine, read aloud by yours truly at Lady Jane’s Salon back in 2009.

Which ice cream flavor are you?

    I asked my friend what ice cream flavor I am and she said sea salt caramel ice cream! I decided for her that she’s most definitely a rum flavored ice cream 😛

    Butter pecan – a little nutty, a little sweet, with the soul of an old man.
