Mouthful Of Marshmallows

Updated on May 13, 2012

When Life Sticks It To You

We have to find a way

I heard an old saying it went something like this...

When life is tough and gets you down punt

I am not sure what it really meant but to me it meant when life gets you down find a solution

Punting was the best solution

Well in my case when I am having the worst day I have had in a long time

I go into the kitchen cabnet and gorge myself with marshmallows

I mean I eat so many at one sitting they are coming out of my ears

How does that help I don't know

All I know is when I am eating them I like them

The squishy feeling has to be theraputic in some way

Maybe thinking back when I was a kid and the only time I ever had marshmallows was in hot chocolate on a cold winter day

Then in the summer if we went camping on an open fire on a stick

Where they were brown or sometimes black

We had two or maybe three and that was just enough for me

Then all of a sudden I felt this nauseous sickning sweet feeling

That I felt ill

That instantly I did not want to eat anything sweet ever again

Then as the months passed all was forgotten

Funny how life makes us forget the bad things that happen

So all we have left is the good

For a little while any way

I hope this helped you

It has helped me for over four decades

The funny thing is I never thought marshmallows get old

I would pull the same package back into the cabnet until they were gone six months later

They seemed fresh as long as I put a twister on it

The thought never crossed my mind what can be opened and last for six month on a shelf and be eaten again without going bad

What's in them ???

They are miracle marshmallows

      Dim Flaxenwick You might be on to something.Maybe I have repressed memories.I think I was beaten with marshmallows till I was all white and sticky.That explains how I go from one mess to another.Just reliving my past over and over again.I knew marshmellows had healing powers.Have a beautiful night.I am going to have a bowl of popcorn that could be my next hub.All Covered In Butter How Sweet Am I.(lol)

      When life gets you down, punt. I believe kick its' as*. As far as marshmallows, I believe they are made with chemicals and therefore have a long shelf life. They rock when they are black on the outside and sliding off the stick on the inside. You suck! Now I am craving marshmallows!

      I haven't eaten marshmellows for years, probably decades. But I do have happy memories of eating them after toasting them on a stick, and sandwiching them between slabs of chocolate and graham crackers.

      I guess that's a rule of life: build up a bank full of happy memories.

      Picklesandrufus I forgot to mention it was on a stick we found in the woods.Not the brand new wooden sticks you can buy or the metal ones kids use today.We ate in the wild like the animals.Really roughing it.Most of the time cooking our food on the old habachi with coals that took forever to heat up.Wish we had propane tanks back then.Marshmallows heated up fast and you had to eat them quick or they would fall off the stick.Thanx for sharing.
