My niece Cora is visiting Provo this weekend. She loves everything Provo, and although she is only 4 years old, she remembers everything she has ever done in Provo. She'll always say, "Don't you remember when we did (fill in the blank with all kinds of things from places visited, to foods eaten, to things said) ?" "No, I didn't remember that." is usually my response. I am amazed at what she can remember.
Anyway, we were in the grocery store last night to get some food for the weekend. I told her she could pick out some ice-cream. She decided on the kind with "vanilla, chocolate, and stra-a-a-awberry." I responded, "Oh, you want neapolitan." She quickly asked, "Why is it called that?" I went to give a response and then realized, I had no response. "I have no idea," I said.
I have been eating neapolitan ice-cream for years, and I have known the name for about as long, but I don't know why we call it that. So, my question for any blog readers out there, "Why do we call it that?" I know that I can wiki or google this, but I want to know if any of you know why of your own intellect in the moment you read this. If you do, please comment and let the rest of us know. Then I will pass it along to Cora because she won't forget that she asked me.
