You learn well, young grasshopper

Following up from her first letter from camp -- without any coaching from me -- comes this gem today addressed only to "Mummy."
Besides, the other girls in my cabin have never heard of Tim Tams and I really want to show and share with them -- can you please send some?
OK that looks like a naked demand but she follows right up.
I miss having food at home. They never cook veggies here -- and when they do, it's drowned in yucky stuff.
Perfect. She expresses missing exactly what her mother values most and uniquely supplies. Just brilliant. Tim Tams -- if we can find them -- are on their way.
