You know how when you have an experience doing something you just know from that point on every time you do that “thing” you are going to think about the experience. Case in point. During the recent visit of the grans, Gran 11 requested scrambled eggs for breakfast. A simple request. Well when I prepare scrambled eggs I always add a little milk; my mother did and so I do. Gran 11 asked me why I did that to which I replied, “it makes your scrambled eggs creamy.” To which she replied, “I don’t want creamy scrambled eggs!!” This was a problem!! She was so distressed about the milk in her eggs that she determined she no longer wanted said eggs.
Distraction really is a good way to redirect ones thinking. So I sent her to the other room to ask her sister what she might like for breakfast. Upon her return I told her I took the milk out of the eggs via SuSu magic. She was a believer!! She ate the eggs and all was right with the world. I’ll never make eggs again what I won’t think of her and the dismay she felt over milk in her eggs!!
