Slice of Lime-Whaddya Got Against Tacos?
Monday of last week I put this box of taco shells and this bottle of seasoning out on the counter along with a note requesting that one of my daughters cook up some ground meat, dice up some tomatoes and lettuce, and shred some cheese so we could have tacos for dinner. Last week I was covering for someone on vacation so I worked late every night. It's Wednesday of this week. The note disappeared long ago but the ingredients remain. No one has seen fit to make tacos. I've come home at 8pm each night and scrounged around for something quick to eat or I've just taken myself out because I'm not putting in a 10 hour day, arriving home at that late hour, THEN cooking when other people have been home all day doing nothing. There are other big people in this house capable of putting together some tacos for all of us to eat. I don't know what they've been eating but the kitchen has been a disaster too. Over the weekend I cooked a couple of nice meals and cleaned up. The relatively easy to make tacos remain unmade. Last night I didn't get home until 9:30. Tonight, more of the same lack of cooking. So if you'll excuse me, I need to go get something to eat. I'm a little hungry.
