Who said eating Ice Cream is not a self reflictive act?

Met with R last night, she came from London for a friends wedding, we sat at the Colony - a very cool bar, walked down Emek Refaim and had same Ice Cream at Aldo. The flavours we had were Bounty and Chocolate Mint, we discussed life, poetry, relationships and then while licking the chocolate Mint ice cream I said its a bit too Minty, Just like Benedict Mints.
R pointed out my that my frame of reference is very British, and it is. Its part of what I lost - my English frame of reference makes sense to me only. I think that's part of the reason for me feeling constantly misunderstood, only I laugh from my jokes, once again. It might be the explanation for my anger as well, or lack of interst in explaining people who amazing were the last three years of my life, they wont really get it, so whats the point??
On the other hand there are 6.500.000 people here who understand my Israeli frame of reference. Well, maybe not all of them, not all of the time.
It was a such a great evening. Well done to R! Who is coming next?
