When you were a child, your parents' legs were tree trunks, crossing the road was scary, and there was nothing in the world more exciting than ice cream. And what could top a sundae bar? Your heart skipped a beat when you glimpsed a table lined with bowls of M&Ms, nuts, and fudge sauce, the big tubs of chocolate and vanilla (and cookies and cream, if you were lucky) standing guard at the end.
When you're having a long Sunday (or Friday, or Monday, or Tuesday...), return to the unadulterated joys of childhood. It will make everything better -- at least for the moment. Build the sundae of your wildest childhood dreams starting from the bottom, with the ice cream base, and working all the way up to the cherry on top.
1. Scoop your ice cream (mixing flavors is permitted).
