A case of the 'can't be bothereds'
“It’s baked beans on toast for dinner tonight,” I announced to Abbey. Her response surprised me and made me laugh.
“Yay! Yay! Yaaaaay!” she yelled as she jumped up and down. Then she stopped. “With butter on the toast?” she asked and, when I nodded, she continued the excited exclamations.
Okay. Not quite the response I was expecting, and if she were any older than two I’d probably have accused her of being overly sarcastic.
In fact, it was baked beans on toast for the second night in a row, and we’d eaten macaroni cheese for the two nights prior to that. The only excuse I can muster is that Steve was away for the week and I was acting like a ‘bachelor’, but really I just couldn’t be bothered cooking that week.
Let’s face it, we all have the ‘can’t be bothereds’ every now and then. Right? Right.
So, let’s have some fun and think about the shortcuts we sometimes take. What's your latest 'can't be bothered' moment?
