The Second Time Around

There's a first time for everything.  This was the second time.  I got a 2 day bug and had to ask P to make dinner.  As always, he insists he has zero ability to cook and no idea how to even begin.  So from the couch I barked specific orders and ingredient amounts for this super simple pantry two bean chili.  Canned beans, canned green chiles, canned stock, super easy but made special with jalapeno jack cheese, sour cream and green onions.  P thinks I fall for his incompetence claims.  The truth is couples give each other all of these little breaks, allowances, get out of jail free cards.  We lie to each other, constantly and we know it.  Hopefully nothing too drastic, mainly it's to protect them or not to hurt each other.  Sometimes the lie is believing his lie.

Just nod if you can hear me. Is there anyone at home?
