He: “So I’m standing here trying to fix dinner …”
She: “Fix dinner? I didn’t know it was broken.”
He: “Right. How ’bout you give me a break?”
He: “Um .. as I was saying. I get a saucepan, open the box, pour the contents of the box into the saucepan, add water … and now the box tells me to stir thoroughly.” Where do I find this thoroughly thingy?”
She: “No clue. I’ve been looking for years. Never found one. Carry on without it. You’ll probably do fine.”
He: “OK, I … dang it!!”
He: “The blamed instructions tell me to bring to boil. No way! I ain’t bringin’ nothin’ noplace! Even if I knew where to find boil any more than I know where to find the thoroughly. That saucepan is on the stove where it belongs, and it’s stayin’ there until it’s done!”
She: “[Sigh] Relax, love. Boil figured out this flaw in the instructions a long time ago. Leave the pan on the stove. Turn on the burner. The boil will come to you. Trust me on this.”
He: “OK. I guess I’ll just keep cookin’.”
He: “What ‘no’?? You want me to try to put this wet, slimy stuff back in the box? And go hungry??”
She: “I want you to cook your dinner. Not you! Are you wearing your suntan lotion?”
He: “In the kitchen?!”
She: “In Hawai‘i. Where you’re broiling under the hot sun!”
He: “Not in the kitchen two hours after sunset, I’m not.”
She: “Phew! For once, I get a break!”

Call the dentist. I think I just cracked a grin.
You guys are too funny!
Wow, if I tried that, I’d be handed a spoon and an empty kitchen!
I’ve learned to keep my mouth shut for safety… 😉
Trying to catch up on my reading (I’m waaaaaay behind). You guys are too funny 🙂
Do me a favour and give Thom love and an extra hard hug from me, and tell him how sorry I am about Henry. Wish I could do that myself.
Hope you enjoy your trip!!
