It’s me again.
I’m starting to feel like the chaser. You know, the part that comes after the main bit. The P.S. at the end of the SoCS day.
Speaking of dessert, I’ve been stealing the two-bite brownies I bought for Mother’s Day. They have pink, blue, and white butter icing and sprinkles on top. They call them Unicorn two-bite brownies and they’re delicious. They go well with red wine …
Can I make a confession? Promise you won’t tell anyone?
I eat my two-bite brownies in three bites.
I’m such a rebel.
Oooh, I just had a sip of wine. The fumes went up into my sinuses. Does that mean it’s good?
Anyway, where was I?
My pasta strainer. The one I inherited. It has to be at least 45 years old–my mother had it forever. I bought one myself when I moved in by myself years ago, but I never really liked the new one. The holes were both too small and they weren’t close enough to the edges of the base of the bowl, so I’d end up with wet noodles every time I tried to drain them.
So when my mother moved in to the retirement home, instead of getting rid of the strainer with everything else, I kept it. It used to have three little legs on it, but they all fell off. But I still love it. It’s my Charlie Brown Christmas tree of strainers. It’s sad, but it has a lot of heart. And it works, which is probably the most important thing.
Know what else is important? Breakfast in bed tomorrow morning. That’s what I’ve been promised.
Gonna be interesting.
Maybe I’d better leave some of those brownies …
