Dedication To The Mallow
With marshmallow offerings at critically low levels in the house -- that tiny unopened packet of mini mallows which came with the Dr Who winter warmer mug isn't going to keep body and mind together -- a sizeable parcel plonked through the post.
Nervous fumbling revealed a shoebox-sized plastic box full of ice cream marshmallow cones, quantity 150: ah, nature's finest. Retail price is 5p a pop, so the label says. I'd put an honesty box in the kitchen for the kids if I didn't recognise the futility of such a gesture.
One adult and three children have wasted no time in gnawing their way through the upper strata. As Agent Cooper might have said, my, that's good mallow.
