ICE CREAM SYMBOLISM

A MOTHER WAS TALKING WITH HER NEWLYWED DAUGHTER
JUST BEFORE THE COUPLE LEFT ON THEIR HONEYMOON.
SHE SAID TO HER DAUGHTER: "MAKE SURE YOU WRITE AND
TELL ME HOW IT IS." AND SHE SAID IN REPLY, "OH,
MOTHER. I CAN'T WRITE ABOUT HAVING INTERCOURSE IN
A LETTER." HER MOTHER SAID, "JUST PUT DOWN ICECREAM
FOR IT, AND I'LL KNOW WHAT YOU MEAN." THE MOTHER
RECEIVED THE FOLLOWING POSTCARDS DURING THE NEXT
FEW WEEKS:
CARD 1. DEAR MOTHER, I HAD ICE CREAM FOR THE FIRST
TIME LAST NIGHT AND IT WAS REALLY GOOD.
CARD 2. DEAR MOTHER, WE'RE HAVING LOTS OF ICE CREAM
NOW, AND I REALLY LIKE IT.
CARD 3. DEAR MOTHER, WE'RE HAVING ICE CREAM ALL THE
TIME NOW. I'M LICKING THE STICK, AND JOE IS EATING
IT OUT OF THE BOX.
