Complexities of food

At 7.30 this morning I asked S what we were going to have for tea and listed all the options we had.

S looked at me blankly with that hint of confusion that I am so used to seeing from him.

'Why?' he asks.

'Because I want to decide now so I can decide what to have for lunch and breakfast' I respond.

There is silence, S looks like he is desperately trying to find the words that best illustrate his thoughts.

'Liv, why don't we have breakfast, then decide on lunch and then tea?'

'Oh no' I reply, 'I can't possibly do that, I always decide on my tea in the morning so my day has focus and I can look forward to it.'

'Lasagne' says S with a look of exasperated exhaustion.
