277-365 (Year 4) Marmalade is tasty ...

I was having coffee with toast and marmalade this morning; and thought how the memories of little things are often the most poignant.

When I made toast for my wife, I'd ask her what she'd like on it and she'd often say, "Marmalade."

To which I'd reply, "Marmalade is tasty if it's very thickly spread." *

And she'd laugh and say, "No, not thick."

And of course I spread it thinly.

 

* From The King's Breakfast by A A Milne (1882-1956)
