It’s glow in the dark jellyfish ice cream using calcium activated proteins that react when they are agitated, or to put it a non sciencey way, it glows when you lick it.
‘It’s All Uphill’ by Stephen Steinbrink
Steinbrink is my greatest find of 2013, better even than the £5 note that mysteriously became stuck to my foot in Sainsbury’s last week.
Not yet convinced that ‘Heiko Julien’ isn’t a grand(ish) hoax, but intros like this make me laugh.
Aside: hi, Heiko. If this were a tweet you’d probably retweet it.
I was out for a platonic dinner tonight with a platonic female friend, platonically.
We ordered and I went to the toilet. On my way, the waiter whispered to me, glint in eye visible from space: “Out on a date tonight?”
I said: “Um, yes?”
He said: “Brilliant! We’ll do all we can to make it a good one! Best of luck!”
We suffered the usual mediocre service! They spilled my drink on me and charged me twice for my main course! Because romance!
