“The campfire’s ready, kids,” their father said. “Grab a skewer. We’re gonna make s’mores!”
“What are s’mores?” his youngest asked.
“You’ll love them,” he answered. “You put a marshmallow on the end of the skewer and hold it over the fire until it’s golden brown. Then put it on top of a graham cracker and a piece of chocolate. You place the other graham cracker on top, like a sandwich.” Turning to his son, he said, “Jimmy, grab the bag with the marshmallows, chocolate, and graham crackers I asked you to put in the car.”
“Sorry, Dad. I forgot it.”
