This post is let you all into a little "goofiness" of Marc....
Marc's mom is lovingly known for letting expired or "old" things sit in her pantry. Apparently, this trait of her's has gone on for a very long time -- well before I knew her.
Back when Marc was in early high school (very early 90s), Marc was down in their basement, looking for something.
He came across this....
It was some old Kraft marshmallow creme.
The key to this find was that the label on this marshmallow creme clearly said this....
According to Marc, there is NO expiration date on this marshmallow creme. There is only a "Best When Purchased By" date. However, I'm reasonably certain that Marc would NOT try this marshmallow creme.
So, being the goofy boy that he is, Marc picked up this marshmallow creme from his mom's pantry and carried it to his bedroom (remember -- this all took place in the early 90s -- well before I knew Marc)....
Marc and his young high school friends got a good laugh out of this....Marc THEN decided to hold onto this jar of marshmallow creme -- just to see what happened.
Let me just say that it is now the year 2010 (in case you didn't know), and Marc STILL HAS this jar of marshmallow creme -- sitting on a shelf in his office here at our home. Yes, this marshmallow creme is now over 26 years old. It's not looking that great, at this point in time!
But, there's more to this lovely story....
For our wedding 6 years ago (in 2004), our good friend, Alissa, bought Marc a little wedding gift. (Alissa's our good friend who "fixed us up").
Yes, Alissa gave Marc another jar of marshmallow creme....Happy Wedding to Us!
Upon taking photos for this blog post, I couldn't find an "expiration date" or a "best when purchased by" date for this marshmallow "fluff." But, I'm guessing, based on the looks of this fluff, it's done with....
But, have no fear! Marc too is holding onto this little momento.
The other night, Marc and I were laughing about this marshmallow creme (you have to admit -- this is a bit funny). Marc even said, "Perhaps this will be something to hand down to Luke someday."
Will Luke even want something like this? Oh -- the family heirlooms you can potentially get by being a part of this family :)
If you are ever at our home, please ask to see this momento. Marc will gladly show you, I'm sure.
