Hey there, awesome Moxie-Dude readers!
I have a question for you . . .
Is it just me or is it super suspicious the way that they’ve invented THE MICROWAVE yet can’t seem to get their act together to invent a “button finger” like the one from the The Jetsons?
It’s really not that complicated.
Press a button. Wait an amount of time that goes back to slightly just BEFORE you were hungry (but not too “before” because that would be the equivalent of getting to the table 20 minutes after you were yelled at from another room that “SUPPER’S READY!”) and . . . TA-DA! The table is set and there’s your meal.
And not only that but it tastes GOOD. (Not at all like I made it.)
The “button finger” would totally solve all my problems – the biggest being that I wouldn’t have to listen to people (who mostly go by the name of Greg) asking me why I can’t seem to ever get a meal right; especially since I work from home.
Dear Greg: Working from home does not mean that I have hours to pour over recipe books. (If I owned any.)
Note from the hamster: Maybe if you cut out some of your FACEBOOK time, you WOULD have time to pour over recipe books.
You see? This is the kind of crap I have to deal with everyday. And while I realize that both conversations above just took place in my head, I happen to KNOW (also in my head) that these conversations COULD happen at any time. They’re like thinking time-bombs.
Dear creators of The Jetsons: I’m thinking that maybe this is YOUR fault.
AGREED! It’s all the Jetson’s fault…. we were raised with the expectation that when we were “grown-up”, the meal process would be comepletely automated!
lol. That said, there is nothing wrong with a hearty sandwich or a bowl of cereal…. and it is not written anywhere that YOU have to be the one to get it on the table. 🙂 All things considered, stay on Facebook and buy a slowcooker 🙂

lol – I have a slow cooker. I call it “my husband”. And thanks for reminding me! I had put it away for the summer. Time to take it out!!!

The Jetsons ruined the future for all of us! And now I’m hungry.
Mona Andrei says
HA! If you’re anything like me, I hope you have something prepared!
