Let's add a kid home sick from school and see how we manage throwing that on the pile?? Sore throat?? Sure! Why not, nothing going on over here that wouldn't be more fun being shoved to the side for a quick trip to the Doctor's Express on Ridgewood Ave this morning (shout out to them though, they are fast and FANTASTIC).
While there cell phone rings...
"Oh you're around the corner?" HVAC guy asks. "Great! Can you come over to the house to see where to put these circulators (regulators? percolators?? I have no idea what you just said...) because your husband said to ask you, and only you for the answers to everything." Hey why not?? I have no f*cking clue what the answers are to any of these questions, but I can fake it if you can, right??
I mean seriously, how do people build houses?? Am I supposed to know where to put vents and electrical outlets and soffits and percolators (still don't think I have that right)? I know NOTHING. NOTH. ING. Well, that's not true, I can make a Ginger Marinated Shrimp over Thai Peanut Noodles that will make you cry its so tasty and delicious, but tell you how big a window to add to my mudroom because the lighting just doesn't seem right (4'?? 5'??) and I want to run out the door (which I did after shrugging my shoulders and saying, 'huh, I don't know, whatever you think?').
Can someone please tell me this gets easier? Because I'm pissed off I had to miss my favorite boot camp this morning for a non-strep sore throat (bastard!!) and then had to go over to that House of Death with its hanging wires and holes in the floor and feel like I am the stupidest human for not having a single answer to what I feel are inane, non-important questions in the scheme of things? Aren't there people I can hire for this?? Because you all hire me to make you dinner - I'm not supposed to have all the answers am I??
Good. Thank you for saying that. Because I don't. Now order up. Because there is something I do know a thing or two about and that's that my food...is nothing less than divine.
And we DELIVER. Top that.
