Einstein loved his ice cream!

While emailing with Belinda Saville, who made for me a gorgeous custom set of jewellery for my mom's birthday, she was encouraging me to get started making things again.  I thought about making Einstein. I'm not sure why....then I imagined him with an ice cream cone. Upon hitting google...

The first thing that Einstein did upon his arrival in Princeton, N.J. in 1933 was to purchase an ice cream cone.  His choice was a vanilla ice cream cone with chocolate sprinkles.  A Princeton student observed Einstein’s first culinary adventure in Princeton and recalled, “The great man looked at the cone, smiled at me ... and pointed his thumb first at the cone and then at himself.”

I like to imagine now that if he had the choice, Albert would love him some mint chocolate chip :-)
