When I get Jack an ice cream CONE, I usually ask for an extra cup, so that we can use it if needed...if it starts melting faster than he can eat it, for example.
Last night, at "Baskin BR Robinsons" (as he calls it), we had a disagreement.
He wanted sprinkles AND a cone. No cup.
I tried to reason with him...with a cup, he'd get more sprinkles, it wouldn't drip, etc.
Finally, out of frustration, he declared, "Mom. I just want to eat my ice cream like a man"
(which apparently means, no cup....but sprinkles are still ok).
