    Sorry, Honey

    July 6, 2007 by Brandy Vencel

    My Dearest Josiah, I want you to know that I really tried to make dinner. I tenderly minced carrots and garlic. I diced zucchini and onions. I added tomatoes, herbs, spices, and honey. I mixed all of this up, and I put it in the crockpot. I plugged that crockpot in, and I even turned it on.

    I am not sure Who pulled the plug, or When they did it. However, I just found our dinner to be quite a bit colder than it should be by now. After all, it’s 3:00 PM.

    So if we don’t eat until 7:00 tonight, I want you to know you have my sincerest apologies. And I promise to try and figure out Whodunnit.

    Update: The culprit, if you are interested, is two-years old. I learned this through using some very sophisticated interrogation techniques:

    Me to five-year-old: Did you pull the plug on the crockpot?

    Five-year-old: No.

    Me to two-year-old: Did you pull the plug on the crockpot?

    Two-year-old: No.

    Me: Are you sure?

    Her: No.

    Me: Do you like cake?

    Her: No.

    Let’s just say that the five-year-old’s answer was much more believable.

    Daddy said that dinner was still quite savory, but that the children should be warned that doing this again in the future would be a very doubleplus ungood idea.

    It was Mr. Nobody!!! I know this because I just read the story of Mr. Nobody to Lauren this week.

    Persecuting youth, Grace?

    Oh my! That is so funny! I can just see E. or A. pulling the plug. I demand an update on how the interrogation went! 🙂

    We are persecuting some youth tonight at the office. That should be fun! 🙂

    I absolve you, dearest chef. But I would like to know Whodunnit when you find out.
