… Dinner this evening was going to be roast lemon chicken with a rosemary rub and a side of couscous. Sounds so deliciously nutritious doesn’t it?
That dinner is not what happened at all. Instead, I put the chicken in the oven and forgot to turn it on and put the pot of water on the stove to boil and forgot to add the couscous. I didn’t realize what I’d done till all the water boiled out of the pot and I smelled burning metal.
“Now what I am going to do”, I asked. My son, trained for disaster readiness, had in one hand a box of cereal and the other a take-out menu to the Chinese restaurant where we are on a first name basis with the delivery driver.
Nope… this is what happened instead
