Dinner’s ready, so where the heck is everybody? You’ve announced it, texted it, you’ve even rung a bell, but you’re still the only one in the kitchen. What’s a home cook to do?
It’s easy to start stewing: I know they heard me! What on earth is taking everyone so long? Don’t they know how much effort it took for me to get this done after a long day of work? And the food is getting cold!
But don’t! Whether you wind up waiting one minute or 10, you should use this time to do something for yourself. And that something should be relaxing.
