Splat!

I don’t cry over spilt milk, but a fallen scoop of ice cream is enough to ruin my whole day.

—Terri Guillemets

P.S.  Thank you to crossword constructor Judge Victor Fleming of Arkansas and his puzzle partner Bonnie Gentry of Arizona for turning this quotation into a crossword puzzle titled “Mishap to Avoid at Ben & Jerry’s,” published in Simon & Schuster Mega Crossword Puzzle Book #7.  Judge Fleming is also responsible for outing me in a 2008 article at a time when I had been trying to run The Quote Garden in a more-or-less anonymous manner. But since it happened anyway, I decided to go with it and very shortly thereafter added my photo to the website and shared a little more about myself. So it turned out to be a good thing even though at first I was a tad mortified. —tg, 2010
