No, the ice cream is the reward for having the conversation.

I wouldn't call someone up to talk about baseball. But I might call a friend and ask how she is doing - like how a particular event she told me was coming up had gone. Or tell her a silly story about my dogs or something. It doesn't really matter what you say. The point is that you reached out - you *did* something to stop your isolation. The first step is the hardest, so whatever you can do to take that first step is wonderful.

And I do have friends who I can call and say "I'm having a rough time, I don't want to talk about it now, but I'd love to hear you talk about something - anything at all".
