Hunger: or, how to get two evening meals...

5.30pm Son arrives home from work. “I’m starving. I’m going to Ian and Jane’s (youth leader and his wife) for a planning meeting at 7."

I reply: “Supper will be ready soon.”

6.00pm Supper is ready, but Son announces he is going snorkeling. Back in half an hour. No big deal.

6.35pm Son returns home, showers and changes.

6.45pm Supper is served.

6.50pm, halfway through supper: Son announces that Jane is cooking a meal for them. No doubt he will eat it. I wonder why he didn’t tell me before. Must have been VERY hungry.

Very tempted to text Jane to tell her he doesn’t need feeding. I don’t. I am sure that he will eat whatever she serves him.

With customary relish and appreciation.
