It has been brutally hot here. We are under a severe heat warning for the next 4-5 days, and have had them for the past few weeks. It hasn’t rained since the end of June, and everything is baked and burnt.
Fortunately, I have spent much of my time in the air conditioning, drinking coffee. Every morning I polish off the end of yesterday’s pot and brew a fresh one for Brad and I to work on throughout the day. (He’s leaving today, by the way. Booooooo.) I’d offer a cup to Lloyd, but he refused.
One morning, though, he surprised me. I perfunctorily asked if he would like a cup, and he said, “Will you make it candy coffee?” which means my way – lots of milk and sugar. I took it one step further and sprinkled in some of the tiny marshmallows that I bought for them in Colorado (at Target). He thought it was great.
Now, note the amount that I, a non-marshmallow-lover, sprinkled in. As a kid, I used to spoon out the marshmallows after making one of those packets that *shudder* included them in the cocoa mix. Now note the amount that Brad sprinkled in his own coffee.
I think we’re on to a new trend. I’d better see if Lincoln’s Target carries these.
