On the way home, they stopped at a small cafe, and the wife went in to get two ice cream cones. She purchased them at the counter and turned around and was face to face with none other than Paul Newman. He signed an autograph for her, and she went back out to the car all excited to tell her husband about meeting Paul Newman. After listening to the story, the husband asked what had happened to the ice cream. In all the excitement, she couldn't remember what she had done with it, so she went back into the restaurant. Once inside, she again saw Paul Newman who asked her, "Are you looking for your ice cream? . . . It's in your purse."
