Champagne & Marmite, I Love You
A Chronology of Events Leading up to this post:
#1 Some time last week I have a skype conversation with my mother in England whilst I am travelling to work on the Caltrain. She tells me to expect a parcel. I don't question her further and promptly forget all about it.
#2 Sat February 9th, early, I am sitting at the Ferry Plaza Wine Merchants sharing a few flutes of bubbles with both a couple of Marmite lovers and a couple of Champagne lovers when I am alerted to an email arrival via my iphone. Because I know that my friends appreciate both Champagne and Marmite I have to read the email out loud:
#3 Feb 9, 2008 9:05 AM
subject Champagne Marmite
There is a slim chance you aren't already up to date on your Marmite
news, but just in case... link
#4 Sat Feb 9th: Sometime later that afternoon, after I have slept off the effects of sharing no less than two bottle of Californian sparkling wine before 11am, I send an sms to my mother in England:
#5 SMS Feb 9 2008 6:58pm To Mum: "Champagne marmite I HAVE to have it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
#6 Feb 10 2008 Middayish. I speak to my mother via skype from home. "Did you get my sms?" I ask. She tries to ignore me. "Could it be that parcel you hinted at has something to do with that sms I sent you yesterday?" I pester her. She changes the subject and I choose not to persue the question further. I sense it is best to keep my mouth shut.
#7 Feb 11th AM. I am sitting in my cube at work when a parcel is delivered. I open it. See picture above.
#8 This Valentine's day. I love my mum! (And, of course, I love Marmite!)
