marshmallow willpower


Oh, The Temptation from Steve V on Vimeo.
This video is hilarious!!! True story: when I was a little girl, my mom left out an entire bag of marshmallows in the kitchen. She was going to make rice crispy treats later that night for a church event. My mom had to run an errand and she told us not to eat the marshmallows. I couldn't resist, so I made up a game (along with my two brothers) that every time we walked around the dining room table, we could eat a marshmallow. Easy game. We did this until all the marshmallows were gone. My mom found out and we definitely got into trouble. This video shows how hard it is for kids to resist the tasty treat and the New Yorker even wrote an article about it. (Via A Cup of Jo)
