It's not too often that I'm the cook in the house. For one thing, I haven't quite figured out this high-tech stove yet, even though we've had it more than a year. But the chicken is in the oven, for better or for worse.
But the men are on their home from work, and they need to be fed before we head off to a music concert. When I say "the men", I'm talking about Jerry and James. James, along with Ruthie, worked all day doing some short-term office work for Jerry. The last time James spent a day working for Jerry, it didn't go awfully well. James said that the work was "stressful" and "annoying". James, you remember, just graduated from high school, so maybe he had higher expectations for what "work" might be than some people would. I'm anxious to hear how it went today. Fortunately, Ruthie, who besides being my niece is also James' aunt, is a no-nonsense taskmaster, so I'm betting that it went better today. Otherwise, if you hear of any jobs for James that are never "stressful" or "annoying", please let us know.
