I emailed those directions to M today. Directions for mashed potatoes. I planned on going to Bikram at 6:15 pm and knew I also had a ton of work to do tonight so dinner wasn’t at the top of my priorities.
When I got home, sweaty and miserable (I apparently wasn’t in the Bikram mood), M indeed had a pot of water and potatoes in it.
As soon as M saw me walk in the door though, his eyes lit up and he handed the potatoes back into my able hands.
I mashed them up and dinner was served.
