"Geez, hun, I was just tryin' to heat up some chilli."

She tried not to roll her eyes at her kitchen disaster of a husband, and turned off the stove. Sitting on one of the eyes was a pot containing what should've been chilli, but instead was a blackened mess of beans and meat. Smoke still wafted from underneath the lid as she moved it from the stove to the sink.

"I guess I kinda forgot."

She still didn't say anything. She wasn't angry at Wade. Well, maybe just a little. The man couldn't be trusted to boil water. What in blazes made him think he could heat up some chilli?

"You know you're not supposed to leave it on 'high' right?"

"I didn't mean to. I wanted to get it started thawing, but the game was on."

This time she did roll her eyes. Football. Men in more padding than a knight in armor shoving each other around a field for a damned ball. She'd never understand it.

"Look, I said I was sorry."

"I know. Just next time, let me do it?"

"Yeah, I'm just glad one of us can cook. Otherwise, we'd starve."

She laughed just as the kids walked in.

"Oh my GAWD!!"

"Dude! What died?"

"Your father and my latest batch of chilli."

"Awww, man! Now what'll we have for dinner?"

"Dad, you're hopeless. Hope. Less."
