A Watched Pot

Mom: What are you doing?

Me: Waiting.

Mom: Waiting for what?

Me: The pot to boil for the pasta.

Mom: You know a watched pot never boils right?

Me: How hungry are you?

Mom: hungry, why?

Me: Because if you aren’t starving I’m going to test that theory out.

Mom: I don’t know about you. You come up with the strangest stuff I’ve ever heard.

We both laugh… I never did test the watched pot theory out. I ended up standing next to the kitchen chair she was in and watched her play on her tablet and a few minutes later the water was boiling. Just to let you know the spaghetti was delicious!
