Shulamit took Rivka and her Dragon to her favorite ice cream parlor, Sweet Dreams of Gainesville, to celebrate the Jewish new year. (Okay, I don’t know how they got to Gainesville, but I love Sweet Dreams and wanted a picture of them there!)
I don’t know what’s distracting Rivka like that but if this picture is from Wacky Flavor Night, there’s probably a band outside playing or the kind of crowd that would put her on her guard, protecting the queen. Either way, a certain opportunistic dragon isn’t wasting any time.
