Is there a set pronunciation for Roastaroma? I say “row-ma” like the tomatoes or Roma. Laurel says “raw-ma” like, well, I’m not sure what. Anyway, I’m drinking some which I haven’t done in ages. Or perhaps donkey years. It’s probably THE beverage of choice from the share a huge house year of college (and what does that tell you about us?)

Speaking of donkeys, I was weeding the folk-tale section of the library last night, mostly looking for books that needed recovering (it was a slow night). There was one book of nonsense stories that hadn’t been checked out in something like five years and was pretty well worn. My coworker was flipping through it to see if it should be saved (we did a couple book rescues on things that we just couldn’t get rid of, even though no one checks them out) and found a delightful story that went something like this:

A farmer had a large supply of popcorn stored in his barn. The popcorn began to pop [I don’t remember how]. The donkey thought it was snowing and froze to death.

And there’s an illustration of the donkey in a cloud of popcorn, shivering. It was literally that long.
