This was my attempt at making scrambled eggs tonight. I managed to burn the eggs, the rubber spatula and the pan.
I have ADHD so I’m not a stranger to burning food but this time was so epic!
Don’t know why my attention span is so bad because I’m sure I took my meds this morning.
Or did I?
Like, work was okay I had meetings all day. Didn’t struggle to get my words out during discussions. Well, maybe I was a bit slow.
I was tired though and I’m still recovering from a shitty cold.
Anyways, got home from work, realised that I’m far too tired to cook a proper meal so decided it was safer to make eggs because it’s quick and easy.
Not so safe after all.
I got as far as beating the eggs, pouring the eggs in the pan but less than a minute later I wandered off to do some laundry. (WTF?)
I remember folding some towels and bedsheets when I smelled the burning – but I just ignored it.
Brain didn’t register. Clearly not giving a fuck about the burning plastic smell.
I carried on pottering around the house until my tummy rumbled because actually, I’m fucking starving.
Oh yeah, I forgot to eat lunch today. Saying that, I had half a bag of Cheetos (100g) at work – so that’s kind of like lunch.
I digress. I decided to make some couscous because it’s quick and easy. So I wandered back to the kitchen and realised what I’ve done.
How the hell I forgot that I was already cooking food is beyond me.
Maybe I did forget to take my meds?
I’m still hungry.
Times like this I wish I had a reset button.
