this is why it's worth it

on sunday, we were so tired from kelly and amy's wedding that we spend the bulk of the afternoon napping. perfect nap day: raining out, kind of cool in the apartment, new pillow-top mattress with fabulous sheets... anyway--when we finally got up, it was clear that we needed food, and it was equally clear that i didn't feel like cooking. but then, the hippie remembered (thank goodness one of us did!) that i needed to make dinner to deliver to a friend on monday, so there was no way i was getting out of it. so i dragged us to the grocery store with feelings of dread to obtain the stuff to make two batches of chicken pot pie. the hippie--he begged. he loves the chicken pot pie, and really--who doesn't. so i made him help me, and we spent a couple of hours in the kitche cobbling it together. he watched the clock like a freakin' hawk while it was cooking and nearly cried when it had to stay in a few more minutes after the timer went off. but man--look at how happy he is eating this thing! i couldn't help it--i made a set of pictures of him while he was eating it. he thinks i am a total jackass for taking all these pictures. but man, it makes me happy.

The hippie does look kind of cute, all enjoying his chicken pot pie. Awwww...

Makes me wish I had some - of the chicken pot pie, not of the hippie, of course...

See, Jackie, I do comment occasionally!
