National Toasted Marshmallow Day

HAPPY NATIONAL TOASTED MARSHMALLOW DAY! WOO HOO!

Here’s a photo (brought to you by AllPosters):

 

Toasted Marshmallow on Stick

How much do you toast a marshmallow before it’s edible for you? Do you get it lightly browned, or do you like it to burst into flames first, blow it out and then eat it? That’s what I do, I like it to burst into flames first. I’m not a pyromaniac, honest. But when I want a toasted marshmallow, I don’t want to wait patiently while all sides are lightly browned. That marshmallow had better be toasted quickly and completely. I don’t mess around with toasted marshmallows.

A Proud Moment

After posting that thing about my having to check lots of stuff before I go to bed at night, I wanted to try giving myself a little therapy. I’m proud to say that last night I checked the doors and the phone only once. Even the toilet seat cover received one glance to see if it was down. I couldn’t get to sleep right away, but that was just because I think I went to bed too early.

So that was kind of a proud moment. I won’t say every night will be a check-free night or a minimal checking night. Depends on how moody and tired I am. But last night was a good night.

Thank you all for your comments on that post! How much do you charge for therapy? ;)
