Only women of a certain era will fully appreciate this.....
A woman and her family were vacationing in a small New England town .
One Sunday morning, after a brisk five-mile hike, she decided to treat herself to a chocolate ice cream cone.
She stopped in to the bakery/ice cream parlor.
There was only one other patron in the store: Paul Newman, sitting at the counter having a doughnut and coffee.
The woman's heart skipped a beat as her eyes made contact with those famous baby-blues.
The actor nodded graciously and the star struck woman smiled demurely.
Pull yourself together! She chides herself. You're a happily married woman with three children, you're forty-five years old, not a teenager!
The clerk filled her order, then she went out the door, avoiding even a glance in Paul Newman's direction.
When she reached her car, she realized that she had a handful of change but her other hand was empty.
Where's my ice cream cone? Did I leave it in the store? Back into the shop she went, expecting to see the cone still in the clerk's hand or in a holder on the counter.
She happened to look over at Paul Newman.
He said to the woman,
"You put it in your purse."
