Chris’s English Marm (read: his mother) sent a package for the holidays. We opened it because she said we had to. Inside, there were some wrapped gifts that go under the Christmas tree, and some food items from England to make Chris feel closer his homeland, or some such thing.
Of course, there was a rather LARGE jar of Marmite in there . . . but some other odd things, too. Like cans of baked beans and some pastry type things called Pork Pie and Sausage Rolls.
And these . . . I think they are cookies . . . I’m not sure. I haven’t tried them – – but they are called “Digestives”
I say, “What on earth are digestives?”
“Cookies”, Chris responds.
“Really, they sound like something old people eat in order to regulate their bowels.” I say.
“Fine, don’t eat them”, he says.
I may not. You know, I’m rather picky.
There’s also some English Cheddar (Chesher?) cheese and English bacon. I guess English cows and pigs are different somehow.
Redfred . . . you have some insight here?
