Finding one cookie in the bottom of a package that you thought was empty! A few weeks back, Chris traveled to England for business. He put one small suitcase inside another larger suitcase. On his trip home – he came back with his clothes in the small suitcase and absolutely filled the larger suitcase the the brim with biscuits and Marmite. Now, the Marmite I can totally do without – that stuff is just… IEW.
I have heard that in order to even like Marmite, you have to have grown up with the stuff. Originally from the UK, Chris did grow up with the stuff. Me? I’m not even sure how they can call it food – much less allow it within 100 feet of your mouth! I used to bartend when I was younger — and Marmite reminds me of the sludge in the bottom of the drink rails at the end of the night. I know this because one night, after we closed… some guy bet me 50 bucks that I wouldn’t pour the drink rail into a tumbler and drink it like a shot.
I won the bet – and I was never the same after that…. don’t judge me.. that was back in the days when I used to have to sing for my supper..literally!
The biscuits, however!! McVities loves me…I just KNOW it. Chris brought home all kinds: Milk Chocolate, Plain Chocolate (which is dark chocolate), Ginger Nuts (kind of like gingersnaps) and Hobnobs (which are oatmeal). I think we have a full years supply of biscuits. Of course, with him being out of town so much lately – I’m hoping there will be some left by the time he is actually home.
I’m a bit of a cookie monster, you know.
