Ice Cream--Hot Day--Action

Part of learning to show not tell deals with showing action. Today's prompt places an ice cream cone in the hands of a character. The weather is hot and humid. Show them eat the treat.

Here's the challenge: Use the following character possibilities to practice difference techniques and results.

3-year-old--chocolate ice cream
14-year-old--chocolate chip mint in a sugar cone
35-year-old--stressed woman looking for comfort food
83-year-old--reliving his childhood through a special treat
