As you all know, we recently made the move from the big city to the suburbs. There have been some life adjustments for all of us – like how to fall asleep when it is SO QUIET!
Somebody, PLEASE set off a car alarm so I can get some shut-eye.
Now, my mom has many fine attributes – she’s generous, hard-working, and super brave to the point of being crazy. She has traveled overseas by herself, moved to NYC without a dime to her name, etc. But when it comes to everyday tasks, she is clueless. That’s the thing about living in cities, you don’t really have to do ANYTHING for yourself because there is always someone there to do it for you. Not true, in the rest of the world.
So, for the next few Mondays, I’m going to help my mom adjust to life in “the real world” by sharing some basic life lessons.
Life Lesson One – Making Coffee. Now, my mom drinks LOTS of coffee, but she doesn’t actually know how to make it – although she’s quite good at ordering it!
First Step – Read Directions. My mom’s not big on reading directions so this step make take some extra time.
Step 2: Pause mid-air to impress the ladies with superhero form.
Step 3: Open lid
Step 4: Add coffee.
Helpful Hint: Take coffee out of can BEFORE adding. Who knew?
Step 5: Add water and close lid.
This concludes Life Lessons with Mr. Pip, Week 1. Tune in next Monday for even more good times.
