Old dog learns new tricks.

FullSizeRenderThey say you are never too old to learn. I probably won’t ever want to copy the new trick my 6 year old grandson taught me on Friday last. Even the procession of sons and grandsons who have been part of my life and who have been up to all sorts over the years, have never done this. I am not sure what it teaches you. The small grandson demonstrated a new way of eating marsh mallows, those tiny pink and white ones which topped his cup of hot chocolate. You need a straw too. His hot chocolate was too hot so he used the straw to sup tiny mouthfuls of the milky liquid and in the process accidentally attached a tiny marshmallow to the end of his straw. He quickly whipped the straw around and ate the marshmallow from the straw. Further lessons were learned as the marshmallows began to melt in the hot liquid. Suck up a dissolving marsh mallow and if it has melted enough you can suck it straight into your mouth via the straw.
