So, the other day, I was at the Doctor and Grant came with me. We were sitting in the waiting room reading magazines. I was reading Better Homes and Gardens and Grant was reading ESPN. As I was looking through the December issue, my eyes widened, my face got closer to the pages, and I started salivating as I noticed AMAZING recipes page after page. There were like 10 that I wanted. I started thinking about all the different ways I could get my hands on them. I considered copying the recipes myself, asking the receptionist to copy them on the copy machine, ripping out the pages I wanted, and then, the last option, just taking the magazine (it was the Dec. issue and we were already in Jan!). I told Grant my dilemma. He told me to go ask the lady to copy them for me. I said no. I felt embarrassed. He became more insistent and then after my fifth head shaking, he snatched the magazine from me and headed up to the receptionist. I started nervously laughing and watched him as he politely said, "Excuse me." The receptionist came over. After a small conversation between he and the copy machine lady, the receptionist said I could just have the magazine!! And Grant, victorious as ever, smiled with accomplishment and I smiled for two reasons. First, that my husband would do that for me (ask the receptionist to copy pages out of Better Homes and Gardens) and second, that now I have the magazine in my possession and I can make those incredible dishes! Simple Thrills.
