As much as enjoy getting B outside when the weather is nice, it's exhausting. I have no idea why shopping with him takes more out of me than shopping along but it does.
Oh yeah. I forgot the part about picking up a 160 pound man to get him in and out of his wheelchair.
Know the best part about living in the same place where you do your shopping? You get to know your local merchants so much better. You walk in and get greeted like a rock star. And if it happens to be the local Asian carry-out they'll give you an extra order of spring rolls for free.
I doubt I have much creativity left in me today so let's get all cheap and meme. A food one swiped from Jemima
. Even her URL goes great with a club sandwich.How do you like your eggs?
In a way that disguises the taste of the yolk. Enough Hellmann's and salt on a hard boiled egg sandwich usually does the trick.How do you take your coffee/tea?

Never Pepsi.You're feeling lazy. What do you make? Jam on toast?
A lazy dinner for me would be a couple tuna steaks sprinkled with lemon juice and a good dousing of Tony's creole seasoning
tossed into a pan until they're just done. A little pasta on the side tossed with olive oil, sauteed bell peppers and grated parmesan with some sliced tomatoes and cucumbers on the side.You're feeling really lazy? What kind of pizza do you order?
The only sort of pizza I eat in Germany are frozen ones.You feel like cooking. What do you make?
Beef stew. Goulash - the kind you find in Hungary, not that ground beef and tomatoes over macaroni stuff people in the US call goulash. Roasted chicken. Geschnetzeltes. Chicken and dumplings. Pie.

When I was a kid it was an enormous treat to get stuff like Spaghetti-Os or Chef Boy-ar-dee Beefaroni. I loved it. I didn't eat it for many years and not terribly long after moving to Germany I saw Chef Boy-ar-dee spaghetti and meatballs on one of those American foods websites and on a whim and flushed with the glow of nostalga I ordered a can.

that I could cram into my mouth before I burst.How spicy do you order Indian/Thai?

Admit it. You cringed when you saw mention of the peanut butter, banana and mayonnaise sandwich.
