Recipe for Disaster
Gather these ingredients:
one child, spirited, speedy, and curious
two parents, overtired and distractible
one Superstore, Huge and Evil
a million shoppers, firmly packed, slightly crazed
Combine in the Vat of Life. Mix well. Add a discussion between the two parents over which groceries are currently needed. Fold in an egg display, preferably at eye level for the toddler.
Cook for just about 15 seconds.
Yield: 12 individual servings of SPLAT!
Sprinkle with two parents who can't help but laugh, and serve immediately.
(Note: this recipe works well at any time of year, but is especially likely to yield results on a Saturday morning two weeks before Christmas.)
