This Turkish ice cream vendor is my new spirit animal

This Youtube video isn’t new by any means, but on the off chance that you haven’t yet had the pleasure of smiling at it, then I’m happy to share it with you now.  It’s spent the past few days making the high-traffic internet rounds for at least two good reasons, and those come before one even considers the fancy sleight of hand at work:  1. This Istanbul ice cream man clearly enjoys his job, and nowadays, that is seeming more and more to be a diminishing luxury, and 2. The customer with whom he’s having his expertly-choreographed bit of fun appears to be all about playing along and seeing what he’ll do next, and his amusement is contagious.  Watch this maestro work and try not to grin.  I dare you.
