Our hearts (and palates) are large enough for that. Surely?
So, here. In celebration of Sweetest Day, or Valentine’s or any day that ends in “y,” are these things: gratuitous gelato photographs. (When in Las Vegas, take an extraordinary number of gelato photographs. Because gelato is pretty. And, as Dostoevsky said, “beauty will save the world.” By “beauty,” he meant “gelato.” Trust me.)
