I’m lucky that I didn’t burn down the house last night.
I arrived home after German class, around 9:20pm, energized. I started watching a podcast on my iPad and thought “Oh, I should cook up the two potatoes and sweet potatoes that I bought the other day so I can eat them for lunches this week!”. I’m trying to find food that I can conveniently eat on the lefthand side of my mouth while I have a temporary crown installed on the right. I brought a kitchen timer, set for 45 minutes, into the bedroom with me so I would know when to turn the tray of potatoes in the toaster over.
And then I fell asleep.
I woke up around 3:00am, but still forgot about the potatoes.
I woke up in a panic around 5:00am when the thought of my house burning down came into my mind.
I apparently slept through the timer’s bells.
Fortunately the potatoes were ruined but that was the extent of damage done.
I’ve learned a valuable lesson, I cannot be trusted to do anything at night because I can fall asleep at any time.
What To Do Tonight?
Since I will be traveling next Tuesday I have decided to skip doing laundry until Sunday afternoon. Because of this I have nothing on my agenda for this evening and I no idea what I want to do.
Why don’t I try burning down the house again?
