That might be nice if you were, say, four.

I was having a glass of a wine with a friend last night who is in the country on a flying visit to organise her wedding. It is going to be at the ancestral home in the provinces.

'How are you going with the catering?' I asked, 'are you going to be able to do it locally?'

'Hmmmmm,' she said,'I asked the "best" cafe in town if they could prepare me a sample menu, which they did.'

'Oh yeah?'

'They even included their signature dish.'

'And?'

She took a sip of her wine and paused.

'Coleslaw with pineapple and marshmallows.'

Every once and a while I am reminded just how outstanding this country is, and last night was one of those times.

Would any self respecting four year old eat coleslaw though?

God. Mayonnaise and marshmallow.

Blurg!

That did cross my mind when I was writing that, Jo!

Can you imagine what it would look like?

PINK.

Ack.

I can tell you for a fact, my 4 year old would not touch coleslaw or pineapple with a ten foot pole, mixed with Mayo or plain, and marshmallows notwithstanding.

That just sounds hideous. Does anyone really eat that?

Now, perhaps if your friend was planning a Polynesian theme wedding....

Ancestral home in the Provinces? Is she the daughter of a Chieftan?

Heh, kind of. I think he'd take the label and run with it.
