Quick Calculation (Revisited)

“Do the dishes so I can make dinner.”

“But Mom, I already did them today!”

“How many times a day do you eat?”

(Grumbles)” I’m NOT doin’ dishes
EVERY time we eat!
Once a day’s enough!”


“What’s cool?”


“Preparing only one meal a day! By the way, what’ll it be: breakfast, lunch or dinner?”

    Hahaha! Still giggling about this, because I’ve gone through this a few times. Called my son and read it to him, he was still laughing when I hung up. Very well done. Be blessed.
