Dinner Dilemma

3:something PM, I am at work

Ring ring...

Beej:Hello, this is Beej.

Todd: Hey, it's me. What are we having for dinner?
Beej: Well, I put out some ground turkey to defrost. Let's make something with that.

Todd: Are you sure you don't want toms burritos from Cilantro's?

Beej: Yeah, I am sure. Let's not be wasteful. Let's have that turkey.

5:30 PM, I am home from work.

Beej: OK, what do you want to make with this turkey?
Todd: Oh, I don't know. I am not feeling spaghetti.

Beej: Maybe we could make a meat loaf.

Todd: I am not in the mood for dinner that contains the word "loaf."

Beej: Let's do tacos.

Todd: (rummaging through fridge) We don't have any shredded cheese.

Beej: I'll cut up the sliced cheddar, it'll be almost like shredded cheese.

Todd: Oh, don't do that. I'll go out to the General and get shredded cheese. You get started on making the taco meat.

Beej: OK, hey, grab those trash bins on the way back. They're still out at the curb.

Todd was pulling out, and I opened the ground turkey and was assaulted by its unfriendly odor. I ran to the door, and stood on the front steps


Todd: (rolling down truck window) What is it?
Beej: The turkey's bad. Get something else for dinner while you're at the General.

Todd: So, do you want tacos or burritos from Cilantro's?

Sometimes he starts out with a way better idea. And I should have just listened to him to begin with.

I hate it/love it when that happens.
