My sister recently left to return to school. I was really excited about her leaving. This is my first time being without her since her birth, 2 months before my 3rd birthday. I'm not really sure what to do with myself. It's the little things really. Like when I get home from the store at night and she calls down to me and waves from the window.
And the other morning when I got hungry...
I'm usually a Cheerios kind of girl because that's about as far as my culinary expertise can carry me. I ran out of Cheerios. Usually my sister has her Wheaties in there but my mom stopped buying them since she's been gone. I opened the fridge to find eggs. I didn't know what to do so I did the only thing I thought of.
I called my mom.
Me: I don't have any Cheerios left and it's too early to make mac and cheese.
Momma: I told you there were eggs in the fridge.
Me: I know. I see them.
Momma: So make them.
Momma: Please tell me you're joking...
I don't know how to make eggs. I can hard boil them but that takes so much time. With the timer, and then waiting for them to cool, and then the peeling. I never peel them right either! I take most of the egg off with the shell and that's too much work for one little egg! I just can't be bothered. My sister always made my eggs for me. She made them so fluffy. She put cheese in them too if she was in a good mood. She also made me toast and buttered it perfectly.
I could probably make myself some toast but I never give the butter enough time to warm up. It's always too hard when I put it on and it just rips the toast. It's so sad.
What did I do?
I did what anyone would do.
I put on my shoes and took a stroll down the block to Dunkin Donuts.
