Things are not always as hopeless as they seem.
I baked a cake, topped it with marshmallows
and promptly forgot it was under the broiler.
Smoke billowed from the oven.
Lil' MaMa came along.
Scrapped the burned marshmallows off,
replaced them with new ones
and placed it all back into the oven
for a few minutes.
Damage control complete -
"Thank You, Lil' Mama!"
