Barren Kitchen: Leaving Patrick Out to Dry

July 24, 2013

Over the past few weeks, my extracurricular activities have ramped up, in a very positive way. I’m part of a great comedy show Wednesday nights, and recording my radio show, and playing some highly competitive playoff co-ed softball, and pushing my book to anyone and everyone that will possibly buy it. However, the flip side to all of this good fortune is that I am rarely home. Like, I haven’t gotten home before 11 PM since last week sometime. Because of that, I haven’t had a chance to go food shopping since last week either (I was in NYC this weekend and didn’t get home until, you guessed it, after 11 PM on Sunday). So, Patrick has been mightily struggling to prepare meals. It’s gotten to the point now where he actually can’t prepare meals, and is being forced to fend for himself as I slowly slip back into a habit of buying all of my meals from to-go restaurants at 4x the cost of my normal diet…

What is worse is that I don’t know when the next time I will be home before 11 PM is going to be.. probably not until Friday. Which means that there are still a couple of days until Patrick will be able to prepare a normal meal for himself and for me. He doesn’t know that yet, but will find out if he reads this post. I’ve been telling him that I’m going to go shopping every day for a week. I don’t do this maliciously, each day I really believe that I’m going to figure out how to go shopping, but then I’m never able to.

So, tonight I will make my way to the North End for my show. I will likely pick up a burger from Cobblestone on Hanover Street, and enjoy it as my makeshift dinner. Patrick, well, I have no idea what he is going to do. I feel bad about the predicament I am putting my chef in, but like I said, I don’t know what else to do!!
