white rabbit, white rabbit, white rabbit..

it's common knowledge that i don't exactly make a concerted effort to go back to my hometown of cayuga very often. i usually pop in about once a year for christmas at my mom's and that's IT. so it's all the more suprising/disturbing to report that i was out there for my THIRD visit of the year last night. the occasion was dinner at my mom's with the rest of the family. in the middle of the year. on a non-holiday weekend. with no presents.

there was wine though- otherwise i surely would have bailed.

after dinner we had a bonfire with the kiddies where we instructed them in the ways of safe marshmallow toasting. auntie tabi reminded everyone that if your marshmallow catches on fire, you should NOT wave it around frantically causing it to fling into someone's face. five minutes later, i was engrossed in a conversation with my two year old niece when my sister said, "see kids, auntie adria's marshmallow is on fire and she's not waving it around. good job auntie adria!"
of course as soon as i noticed that it was on fire, i was waving it around like a maniac in an effort to extinguish the flame before too much damage was done.

what?

i don't like the burnt ones.

i always thought the point WAS to set them on fire and fling them at things.

i've never set a marshmallow on fire. i've never put a marshmallow on a stick and held it over something hot. i've never eaten a marshmallow any other way than in a direct packet-to-mouth pattern. i feel that i'm missing out on alot.
