Sitting in the airport in Denver, waiting for our flight to Heathrow to board, and a large group--a family, or maybe two--arrive at the gate. If they hadn't been speaking, I'd have taken them for Colorado natives...or maybe their shiny new cowboy boots and hats would have given them away. I think they're Italian, though I haven't been able to catch more than a word or two in the low murmur of their conversation.

One of them--a twenty-something man in a Rocky Mountain National Park tee-shirt--is handing out marshmallows to the rest like some exotic treat, and that strikes me as the oddest thing yet.

It's always the little, mundane things that you discover you've been taking for granted, isn't it? Marshmallows. Who knew?
