Don’t eat the marshmallow…yet!

A friend (thanks!) posted a link, http://tinyurl.com/3x33nlg,¬†on the “Wall” of the Facebook MM, MGUS and SMM support group. The link will take you to a six-minute video about a child’s ability to delay gratification and how it can predict future success. So the premise is very serious…

But I laughed until tears were rolling down my face…All the kids are fantastic, but the little girl who ends up snorting her marshmallow is simply hilarious! ūüôā Have a look…

Afterwards, I idly wondered how, 45 years ago (!),¬†I might have¬†behaved during¬†the marshmallow test. Well, I am 100% positive that I would have¬†resisted temptation, for the simple reason that¬†I have never¬†liked marshmallows!¬†However, had¬†that marshmallow¬†been magically turned into¬†a piece of Slitti chocolate with toasted almonds…uhm…in that case…not so sure…

  1. Dear Margaret:

    Thank you so much for commenting on my talk in TED. Yes, the kids were incredible and you are right, the little girl simply takes the price, LOL. You will probably enjoy my book Don’t Eat the Marshmallow Yet, hope someday you are able to read it.
    REgards,
