in her professional bio.
Once upon a time, there was a little girl called Marggie, who liked to try new ice cream flavours. Chocolate chip, vanilla, lemon curd blueberry, mandarin orange, and even queso-flavoured ice cream.
Marggie was getting to be a Big Girl, about four. She lived in the North Pole, and from her living room window, she could see polar bears gliding on the floating ice. She loved to play in the snow and eat ice cream. Although she wished she could eat ice cream every day for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, of course, she wasn’t allowed.
“Ice cream is for weekends and super special days, Marggie,’ her Mom said. So Marggie waited and waited. Patiently, she waited, only asking one hundred times or so, if today was a super special day. Until finally, it was Saturday.
She went to the ice cream store and got her ice cream cone, with not one but two ice cream scoops. Marggie smiled, thinking how lovely her ice cream would taste, when she ate it on her way home.
But then, by accident, Marggie dropped her ice cream cone. It fell to the ground and made a “plonkity-plonk” sound. Down it rolled, all the way to a mud puddle. Marggie felt really sad feelings. It felt to her like her sad heart sank to the muddy ground, too. Her ice cream was gone! She started to cry and could not stop.
Marggie cried a lot!
She started to walk home, but she was too sad even to walk. So she sat on a bench and cried, feeling hopeless, sad, and alone. All alone, without a single ice cream cone. Her heart felt cold and hopeless and oh so sad.
