Image from the website ‘Dessert Comes First’ – loads of great mini Magnum pics to chose from http://dessertcomesfirst.com/archives/13511/
Amazing what you can find on the internet!! Loved the mini / normal Magnum comparison photo here!!
This 5th poem in the ‘Consultations with my mother’ series riffs off a running joke with Mum whenever we see her and ask her if she’s enjoyed a Magnum Mini recently….
V – Mini Magnum
They’re good for you
No, mini Magnums
Oh. I see, well yes they are smaller
(Mum looks guilty)
Well, perhaps they are not so healthy when
(she takes a deep breath)
You eat ALL of them.
Mum! The whole box?
Six mini Magnums, all in one go?
She smiles, like the cat that got all the Magnums –
(Mini Magnums mind you, so that’s ok.)
