I get so angry when I have to see my friends live a deprived life. Like having hot chocolate without their precious marshmallows. Life is just not fair.

Men !!! They still think bigger is better !!!

If I were to use them in hot chocolate they wouldn't fit in the mug
Problem solved: Cram one of those babies into a mug, carve out the centre & then pour hot chocolate into the hallowed out marshmallow.

Kitchen shears should handle those giant marshmallows.

You all are way too funny.

I'm not kiddin' about these marshmallows. They are called campfire size and they are humongous !!

One will probably do for 4 cups of hot cocoa ... good thing my dogs like marshmallows !!

Now ... if only I had some milk .. I hate when I want something really bad - like hot chocolate - and I am out of milk

I don't count but I like your answer. I feel the same way, hate being held up or back by what others contribute. I am not a team player when it comes to my grades or my job.

Me either. I did 90% of the legwork for the whole project and my group members still waited til 10:00 the night before to send me their portions of the speech (even though I wrote out a formal outline with all the info they needed). They also read off sheets of printer paper instead of using note cards. It's a college level class and I didn't really think I needed to tell them that would not be acceptable. I'm guessing we probably got a B. Maybe a C at the absolute worst, and I could get 65% and still easily get an A in the class. So no stress lol

Okay, my turm. I hate when I get the most ungodly stomach cramp and it turns out to be the tiniest of gas bubbles. At least make it worth my while for making the trip to the outhouse and not waste toilet paper. Geesh!
