Friday Fictioneers — S’mores

C7D45327-3A10-49E4-9AE0-DD70D9138E49“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.”

    Hahaha, such a traditional thing for a kid to do. Just this morning (as we do 5 days a week for 7 months), we head out the door to take Zivah to school. Down the steps, doors open and she says I gotta get my pack pack🤦🏼‍♀️🤦🏼‍♀️

    Speaking about fires, were you close to that San Francisco gas explosion fire that burned 5 buildings the other day?

    Change of plan. I’d never heard of s’mores until this prompt went out, but they sound appallingly unhealthy.

      They are. But they are also irresistibly delicious.

    Poor start to bar-b-cue party. What would dad do now? Does he have anything else to eat and teach his kids? May be not to forget cracker and marshmallows next time.
