Carvel Ice Cream, Niles, Illinois

This taco stand was once a Carvel ice-cream store. It was at this exact location, back in 1973, that I placed a fateful pistachio-shake order.

I’m not much of a criminal. I don’t think I’ve intentionally stolen anything since I was confirmed, and I survived the great missing-leftover-pizza scandal that rocked my household last weekend with my reputation largely unscathed.

I have no gift for prognostication. I predicted, for example, that Newt Gingrich and his wife Callista would divorce shortly after the 2012 presidential election—we’re still waiting on that one. I also once predicted that I would own a Porsche 911 by the time I was 35; now, I am shooting for 55.
