This morning, being a kindly soul, I toasted a soda farl (look it up, American readers) to share with Mr WithaY for breakfast.

I toasted it just nicely, put some butter on it, then addded a little honey. Mmmm-mmm.

Mr WithaY came into the kitchen and I said "Would you like half a farl with honey on it?"

"Um, not really" he replied distractedly.

Fair enough. I ate my half, packed my lunch and went back upstairs. As I was getting ready to leave for work, Mr WithaY came upstairs too, looking a bit odd.

Mr W: "Did that farl have honey on it?" (Ha, he obviously ate it after all.)

Me: "Yes."

Mr W: "Odd combination."

Me: "Not really, they aren't savoury."

Mr W: "They are if you put Marmite on them."

No only did I have to look up soda farl, but Marmite as well.

Exhausted now. ;)

Look at it as a sort of free continuing education project.

It will come in dead handy when you watch British tv too.

No need to thank me.
