I don’t know what it’s like at your house, but around these parts, life is pretty busy. Each of us gets caught up in projects, books, movies, or games, and meal time tends to creep up on us. If I’ve been absorbed in something, I'll look at the clock in shock: Dinner time already?
My mind starts to wander toward the car keys and calculating how long it will take me to drive to In-N-Out Burger and back. If I’ve planned wisely, I can take a detour to my deep freeze instead.
