note to self
- when you put the cheese on the chicken patty to melt on the top rack and turn on the broiler, don’t start making a homemade weather vain for the kids.
- when you discover there’s a fire in the oven, don’t open the oven door.
- when you throw a cup of water on the fire, don’t leave the door to the oven open to see what’ll happen.
- when you do all of these things, don’t call your husband at work for him to hear the smoke detector going off and then tell him, “no, it’s all okay, you can stay at work.”
