big boxes = burnt dinner

oh happy day
two boxes
were waiting...
for me when i walked
into the kitchen
last night
i quickly carried them
into my creative room
ran upstairs to
start dinner
then went back to open my boxes
big mistake
i immediately
became so engrossed
in the new
fun stuff
i forgot about dinner...

...until i hear
my youngest son scream
the hash browns
are on fire
i'm surprised the smoke detector
didn't sound
i quickly put the pan outside
in the grill
to cool off
best go to plan b
next time
the family is going to hide
my boxes
until after dinner

LOL! You had a very good reason to forget about dinner!
