MRS. NIKZAD: The Ice Cream Parlor?Do you mean the one which is near your father's bank at the Fair ?

MR.NIKZAD:What is it, Ali?
ALI: Father, may I please have a birthday party?
MR. NIKZAD:Of course, Ali. Why not?
ALI: Thanks, Daddy. [Ali hugs his father.]
MR. NIKZAD: What kind of party do you want, Ali?
ALI: An ice cream party!
MR.NIKZAD:IS that what you want?Wouldn't you like to go to a baseball game instead?
ALI: Daddy, this is much better/ You eat lots and lots of ice cream. They put it in a big bowl. And then, when you've eaten so much ice cream that you can't eat any more, you eat some more anyway.
MR.NIKZAD:It sounds terrible.
MRS.NIKZAD: I guess it sounds wonderful to kids. What do you think, dear?
MR.NIKZAD: Okay, Ali. It's a deal.
ALI: Oh, boy!
