It's One Of Those Days
Where anything goes
The other day we were food shopping and marshmallows were on sale
Two bags for a dollar
They had a whole big bin
I instantly wanted to buy all of them
I don't have marshmallows often
When I do eat them
I love everything about them
These weren't the average or the jumbo ones
They were the tiny mini ones
They are so much fun
So many in one bag
Soft and squishy
I pop a few in my mouth and wait to see what happens
Little puffs of joy
A sweet kick after a long day
I could add them to a bowl of ice cream
Then again I could cover them with chocolate
I am too lazy
I will just eat them
I should stop
I really don't want to
They contain sixty percent corn syrup, thirty percent sugar
and one percent gelatin
They have no nutritional value
After a few handfuls
I had my fill
I put them back on the shelf
Where they will sit
Until next time
When I need a little pick me up

Srushti Gamit Marshmallows all day. They are a fun food to play with. You can pick up one or two with your fingers. No forks are needed. If you have any new ideas let me know? Remember not to have too many. They are a good sweet treat. Thank you for reading and sharing. I love having fun in simple and loving ways. Have a great day. Happy writing.

This is really fun to read!!
Your poem literally has every single thought we have before, during and after eating Fluffy sweet Marshmallows.
This is so me, I always wanted to be so creative while having them like I want to dip them in chocolates or add them with some other desserts but being too lazy I just munch them as it is. So relatable.
Thanks for sharing.
