First, make sure you're on your front stoop. They taste better that way.
This is the traditional method, which works well, but is for amateurs.
You can also try the more challenging upside-down method.
Whatever method you choose, watch out for brain freeze!
If Mommy asks for a bite, the answer is "noooo."
If you can't finish it all at once, it's okay to put it in your pocket for later.
If it comes off the stick-- as it inevitably will-- don't panic.
Go ahead and use your fingers to finish up.
(A bonus of this is that you are more likely to get a bath later.)
Don't forget to compost the stick.
And "Wash Your Hands When You're All Done."
That's all there is to it. Now it's your turn!
