Subject: Re: Update on S'mores

The French have a version of chocolate sandwiches in their pain au

chocolat, a brioche with a bit of chocolate inside.

The modern suburban girlscout of today, who camps out with her troop at the

local Radisson Suites while watching a rented video of Troop Beverly Hills,

makes her s'mores in the microwave (wrapped in wax paper, not glad wrap).

That, anyway, has been my daughter's experience. When she gets home from

middle school this afternoon I'll ask her s'more about it. S'mores, it

seems to me, has been replaced by Puppy Chow, which is a combo of cereal

(Purina chex of some kind?), chocolate, and peanut butter nuked in a big

plastic bowl.
