When we were younger, an ice ball made of shaved ice cost 5 cents. I used to buy one from an Indian ice ball seller in the mornings before school and split it into half and share with my friend. In the evenings, my friend would buy one and we would share that one too! That way we get to eat the ice balls twice a day! We really valued sharing when we were younger.
